Timothy P. Wilson
Timothy P. Wilson is a Maine-based painter. After receiving his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008, he spent a period of time wandering before settling in Portland, Maine where he maintains a permanent studio. After years of portrait and figurative work, he merged his holistic concepts of the ocean, landscape, and figure; aiming to find a more abstract and resonate image through the natural deconstruction of imagery. He works from direct painting on location and expounds upon his studies in larger studio paintings.
Both a meditative ritual and obsessive dedication, his daily outings in stormy, serene, and inclement weather to coastal Atlantic locations help inform an experiential vocabulary and expressionist mark making. In addition to regular exhibitions and numerous awards, he has attended residencies at the DeDee Shattuck Gallery in Westport, Massachusetts, the Hewnoaks Residency in Lovell, Maine, and was an Art Students League selected fellow at their Hudson Valley residence location. On occasion, he teaches and lectures at the Maine College of Art.
