Biography

Old Biography

Timothy Harding (b. 1983) makes sculptural paintings and installations that meld traditional painting and drawing practices with technology. Harding draws his piece on the computer in order to create vinyl stencils of the individual lines, squiggles, and shapes. He then utilizes these stencils while translating his digitally-created drawing onto a canvas, applying layer upon layer of paint until a fully realized pattern emerges. 

Harding’s works merge the gestural nature of Abstract Expressionism with the flatness of Minimalist painting to explore how a traditionally two-dimensional object can visually and physically occupy a three-dimensional space. He purposefully stretches his finished paintings across ill-fitting supports or builds a substructure under the canvas in order to make the surface fold, buckle, or protrude, “sculpting” the painting into a unique shape.

Timothy Harding lives and works in Fort Worth, Texas. He is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Tarleton State University. Harding received his Master of Fine Arts degree from Texas Christian University (2010), and his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Texas Woman’s University (2008). In 2018 Harding was a visiting artist at the Center for Creative Connections at the Dallas Museum of Art. In 2016 he received a Nasher Sculpture Center Artist Grant. Harding has exhibited nationally and held residencies at 77Art, the Wassaic Project, and the Vermont Studio Center.
