Timothy Tompkins / Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects

Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects presents new paintings by Timothy Tompkins in the main space and curated projects by Gosia Wojas and Joanna Szupinska in the project spaces. With kind permission of gallery owner Susanne Vielmetter VernissageTV visited the gallery one day before the opening of the show. In this video Susanne Vielmetter talks especially about Timothy Tompkins. Tompkins (born 1967) lives and works in Los Angeles. He received his BFA from Otis College of Art and Design, in 2003. In his exhibition at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects (August 4 – September 1, 2007) he presents “new paintings from the Left Over series in which he playfully merges references to the still life paintings of Jean-Siméon Chardin with the experiences of consumerism” (from the Press Release). By VTV correspondent Parichard Holm. August 3/4, 2007.
