> DESCRIPTION

CONEY ISLAND OF THE MIND is a solo show of the work of artist Tim Youd. This exhibit combines the artist's love of literature with his lust for the flesh, wistfully merging sculpted assemblages of cerebral observations of great writers on the subject of the female anatomy with large expressionist drawings of the same subject. The installation overwhelms in an amusement park-like madness of the impossibility of the male gaze to ever fully comprehend the feminine. Viewers are left as in awe of the biological source of life as are titillated by the artist's raw yet obsessive forays outside the bounds of traditional figurative subject matter and presentation.
