Plum Sauce and Pound Cake
About The Piece
‘Plum Sauce and Pound Cake’, acrylic on canvas
The artist, Tim Anthony was raised in Minnesota and studied at the U of M in the late 1960’s, majoring in Psych, Humanities and Art.
After another stint out East studying oriental medicine by attending what is now the Kushi Institute in Becket, Massachusetts; he returned to Minnesota and engaged in an alternate life style, settling on small contracted jobs in order to support more artistic but non-paying endeavors.
After some time was devoted to the art world again and in lieu of pursuing a degree due to circumstance, he decided to simply put together a folio sampling of work in book form. He thought it may sell and solve the dilemma of making a living from fine art. What has since entered into his art work is a sense of drama from life experiences including literary and film influences.
Aside from real world dealings, his retreat to hunting and fishing put a scenic touch to some of his work. Additionally, his landscapes were influenced by a Swedenborg, George Innes supernaturalism, his still lifes by a Chardin like sensorium and the abstracts by a Kadinsky type chaos.
The artist’s imagination added to the illustrative feel for the images by coupling text and folk tale and by being a double cancer. He likes mythology.
