"Subterranean Books will be hosting the art work of Timothy Wagner as part of the Loop Arts Fest, with an opening reception Friday, June 23rd from 6pm to 8pm.
Timothy Wagner works as a mixed media artist using a wide variety of media from found imagery to inks. All of the art is created on reclaimed materials such as vinyl records, wood and canvas.
Timothy's work is thought-provoking and a visual language that is an approach to expression of form, space and color, referencing our natural world and its surroundings. "The ambiguity of my work is created on a subconscious level."
Work will be on display June 15 - August 31.
