Gee, I like this guy's work. Tim Biskup, I mean. In my opinion he's one of the best painters out there now.
What I see in Tim's work is an intelligent, civilized mind that delights in fun. Seeing a picture like this (above) reminds me how lucky I am to have five senses. It makes me think of the world as a gourmet feast served up because somebody out there likes us.
For me a skull (above) represents mortality and intelligence. To see it covered with painterly color like this celebrates the emotional side of intellect. Since it's a skull it also underlines the tragic nature of our short life span, but offers the consolation of "Think of what you saw. Think of what you experienced. Wasn't it great?"
Haw! It occurs to me that artists usually disavow artsy fartsy explanations like this.
Here's (above) the man himself. Is that April March's music in the background?
