Preview: Tim Biskup "Excavation" @ Antonio Colombo, Milan

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 18, 2012
Tim Biskup's exhibition of new paintings opens this Thursday at Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea in Milan, Italy. The new body of work began with a series of abstract drawings created in a burst of creative energy. The urge to loosen up came after a visit to MoMA NYC for the William de Kooning retrospective as well as in reaction to the rigid complexity of the work for his Former State exhibition at THIS Gallery in Los Angeles nearly a year ago.
