Tim White-Sobieski's ongoing body of work, Route 17N, captures an ambiguous age. The images reflect the surreal aspects about growing up and entering the adult world, with the associated perceptions and consequences. Through staged activity, the artist explores a visual sense of reality and non-reality, with symbolic representations for fear, play, contemplation and isolation that bring him closer than ever to cinematography. A heightened sense of light and dark captures the context of time and movement.
"Light Currents" is a series of light sculpture and video installation. Developed over several years, the artist's expression of light, movement, pattern and relationship is based on previous photo and video projects. Whether a single disc or several grouped as an installation, White-Sobieski creates the growing pulsating circular forms to represent changing light energy. The artist sometimes combines a disc with one of his photographs to show relationship to photo and light. Large scale installations can include several discs which cover the wall or ceiling, creating a universe of light. The illuminated circular discs are available in sizes ranging from 72 inches, 60 inches to 48 inches in diameter.The intent is to stretch the boundaries of the medium, as well as to challenge the viewer to a new understanding of visual aspects.
The "Deconstructed Reality" series by Tim White-Sobieski represents an artistic statement that the universe is not only unpredictable in its development, but also that reality, as one perceives it, can be broken down in its elementary components to reveal new meanings. The resulting parts can then be skillfully re-arranged into an intellectual construct independent from the space and time constraints that govern the narrative of daily life.
