The Work of Amy Timms

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 20, 2012
UK-based artist Amy Timms' paintings aim to convey the essence and souls of the animals that they represent. Working primarily in bold, flat gouache, the interplay between color and negative space is key. Timms draws upon multiple themes of death, decay, rebirth, melancholia, and metamorphosis, and she takes inspiration from the science of anatomy, entomology, folklore, taxidermy, and the indigenous flora and fauna of the British Isles.

Anouk Mercier’s work centers around the notion of escapism through the fabrication of narrative. Relying on the nostalgia of Romanticism and mythology to depict melancholic worlds and characters, her drawings celebrate both the power of the imagination to escape the quotidian and the mundane, whilst also exploring the mysterious, the abysmal and the uncanny that often lurks behind idylls.
