  • “If my work is completely understood, then I’m doing something wrong. It’s good for both to exist, understood and misunderstood.”
    — Timothy Curtis

     


    The artist in his studio


    “I draw every day and I am different on every day. And so, my work evolves as I do. But more specifically regarding the faces that often appear in my work, I’ve spent years compiling notebooks that are filled with drawings of probably tens of thousands of unique faces. I reference my notebooks constantly for ideas. It’s like a visual journal, I catalogue every moment, idea, and feeling through drawing.”
    — Timothy Curtiss
