Timothy Paul Myers Solo Exhibition
New York, NY, November 10th, 2009 – “Parts Repeated”, a solo exhibition by Timothy Paul Myers, will open at Robert Steele Gallery on Thursday, November 19th, 2009. The exhibition will run through Saturday, December 19th, 2009. Robert Steele Gallery is located at 511 West 25th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues in Chelsea Suite 402. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 6pm and also by appointment.
With continued interest in the themes of scale and numerical extremes, Timothy Paul Myers’ newest work, parts repeated, deepens his exploration of objects in repetition and introduces his process of building paintings through the manipulation of his new compositional materials: “parts.” Conceived of as mobile molecules of color, the parts began as 30 boxes of pencils hand-cut into 51,840 pieces. These pieces were then washed, sanded, racked, painted, and dried to form fully finished parts. Next, the parts were sorted, composed and adhered into their final configuration. Myers’ spare composition showcases the part as a newly iconic material and establishes the part as the primary building blocks for his future works.
