One reason I love the art of Tim Holtz so much is the style-I call it “vintage grunge.” I love “old” things-always have…old houses, antiques, collectibles, shabby chic, primitives…I think the main reason is that so many things bring back precious memories for me…memories of scents, tastes, feelings, touch, texture, sounds…obviously the senses play a huge part in what I like and what I feel.
Tim has a way of incorporating the most interesting materials into his pieces…they keep you looking and looking and discovering something new…it may be an embellishment or a unique way of using ink or some other step that just makes you think, “wow!” The process of creating fascinates me, and that’s one reason I’m a fan of other artists’ work. I also love learning, and I learn so many things by observing.
This tag has so much going for it…the elements offer so much in texture, variety, and nostalgia.
