Statement

Bio:

Timothy Gaewsky is an interdisciplinary artist who currently works in painting, assemblage, and installation. Gaewsky earned an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and a BFA from The Cleveland Institute of Art. His hard-edge, graphical, and witty paintings and installations draw on aesthetic influences from diverse sources, such as carnival games, toy packaging designs, pinball machine graphics, 8-bit video games, and more. His creative aim is to manipulate these elements in order to entice a visceral response from the viewer. Gaewsky has exhibited both nationally and abroad in group exhibitions at galleries and museums, as well as individually. Recently, Gaewsky was awarded an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award grant for FY2015. He currently lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio.
