> DESCRIPTION

Exhibiting in the Gallery's project space concurrently with Edie Fake's exhibition is Lonesome Whistle; new paintings by Tim Wirth. Wirth lives in a rural community in northern Iowa where he works on a farm and makes square paintings. Combining a post-ironic Midwestern Christian aesthetic with text and abstraction, the artist wades into the territory of diminutive billboards that deliver powerfully simple messages of humanity and compositional sophistication. The show's title is descriptive of Wirth's geographic isolation and mental space; an environment with no art community and where no return vibration can be detected in response to his work. After attending Savannah College of Art and Design's MFA program, he moved back to Iowa.
