Tim Schweitzer

Tim Schweitzer’s assemblage boxes are delightful: found objects, wood and metal combined in a tight package. Warm wood contrasts with a mix of surfaces of dull and shining metal, making you take a closer look at a familiar combination.

The sense of containment is what makes these pieces work so well for me – in each, there is an order that asserts itself firmly in horizontal repeating lines that keep the eye organized, or in the frame which stoutly holds everything inside.

Tim’s use of color keeps the eye moving, and lends a further feeling of nostalgia for these old objects with a cherry red and retro blue popping up here and there. Some of the boxes seem to represent a landscape, like Piano above; the box below, Fly on the Wall, makes me think of a portrait: a women with a large hair bow perched perkily on the side of her fashionable head.
