If you are in Provincetown, MA on Friday evening (7/29), check out my friend Tim Convery's new work from 7-10pm at Foc'sle, 437 Commercial Street.
Tim is a graphic visionary, and last weekend he gave me a preview of his new work. The poster-sized artworks are rifts on travel posters. They are constructed of colored duct tape and employ traditional 2D design mediums (now lost to the computer) like acetate overlays and hand cut graphics. They reminded me of Matisse, but upon closer inspection they are even more gridded out than Swiss-school posters.
Back in the 90s, Tim and I worked at Prescriptives cosmetics together. He has an amazing sense of style and beauty, and I learned alot from him. One of my criteria as I design is often, "what would Tim think of this?" It is a high bar.
His new body of work is smart and compelling. I loved them so much that I bought one. I hope to bring some of this work to the Harry Allen Design Showroom in the fall.
