Pentimenti Gallery continues its spring season with a solo exhibition by TIM EADS.
For Soft Focus, Tim Eads presents a new body of work he describes as, “paintings reimagined as tufted textiles”. Each piece is created using ‘dead stock’ yarn of the highest quality that has been thoughtfully selected and composed based on pile height and color, then individually applied using a hand-held tufter. These works expand upon Eads’ exploration of rigid geometries and digital designs to incorporate elements of depth and softness inherent within their materiality.
With this work, Eads continues to find new ways of creating fascinating moments of beauty and lasting meaning inside his own unique funhouse of playful creativity. At the core of much of his work is an emphasis on the importance of environmental awareness and sustainable practices. While sincere, Eads has an extraordinary way of presenting these ideas in an optimistic, lighthearted, and vibrantly colorful manner.
