Timothy Rose Biografie

Timothy Rose www.mobilesculpture.com

I am exploring light, shape, and time. The air is the color. The shapes are familiar to me: combs, triangles, sawteeth, sticks, and circles.

Each unique piece was hand-cut, built straight from a pencil sketch, cutting each shape from sheet metal, using electric shears.

I construct and balance using the pencil sketch as a reference. The sketch is a tiny, flat moment; like a shopping list in time. Each finished mobile captures a feeling I wanted from the sketch. It has a life of its own, the movement setting up a conversation. A successful one dreams.

Mobile sculpture has been my source of creative output for more than 40 years. I was first inspired and still am by the engineering of Alexander Calder’s work, and am currently drawing from the work by the Russians: Vassily Kandinsky, and Kasimir Malevich.
