Re-emerging into the art world following thirty years in the field of education, Tim L. Brown returns to his roots as a mixed-media assemblage artist focusing on a series of contained altar pieces and sculptures. Each tightly constructed and well executed assemblage reflects not only Brown's artistic statements, they also resonate with specific references to spirituality and growth.
An accomplished jewelry designer since 1967 who also exhibited fiber compositions at the Art-A-Fair Festival in Laguna Beach in the late 1970's, Brown now carefully selects, alters, ages and
assembles images, "found" objects and cast-offs that, when combined, explore the challenges and successes on his spiritual journey. Each item in the construction is specific to the overall image Brown creates, challenging the observer to deconstruct the "whole" in order to glimpse the emotions conveyed as each altar piece materializes.
Brown is a native of Long Beach, CA and now lives full time in Santa Fe. New Mexico. While studying art and design he earned his Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies and his Master's degree in Educational Administration. He taught all grade levels from pre-kindergarten through high school, and served as Assistant Principal, Principal and District Administrator in three Southern California school districts. Brown retired from education in 2009 and is currently creating both large and small assemblage exploring spirituality, growth and ascension. He continues to expand his jewelry design business and his "Satchels and Bangles of Santa Fe" in his combined studio just off Old Taos Highway in Santa Fe.
