Timothy Hamilton's If You Cling To Me, I'll Clang To You, features a large-scale kinetic installation along side his prints and drawings. In Hamilton's installation work systems are given physical form, building a landscape structure that highlights the relationship between map and territory, reminiscent of their origins as purely human inventions. These landscapes subtly contract and expand through a matrix of automated pulleys.
The structures are geometrically abstracted and referential of natural and human-constructed landscapes. By working on a large scale and in response to the space, Hamilton invites the viewer to investigate the details and also experience the work at large from a distance. Maps, blueprints, landscapes, nature, and architecture inform his compositions and the visual relationship with perspective drawing.
Timothy Hamilton received his BFA at the University of Oregon. Hamilton is a current MFA candidate at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, continuing SooVAC's long-standing commitment to annually exhibiting the work of MCAD students. Timothy has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions regionally and in Oregon. This will be his first solo exhibition in Minnesota.
