Timothy Lamb’s debut solo exhibition imagines a glimpse into a vibrant parallel universe where chaotic scenes of war and leisure play out a familiar and timeless existence. In settings of neither past nor future, figures fill the canvas engaged in savage civil wars, ritualism, and dangerous encounters with the untamed wild. Inspirations include a life-long obsession of dinosaurs, religious art, comics, and science-fiction, and the art of battles preserved in many ancient civilizations. The artist works with acrylic paint, using a Paasche airbrush and neons to bring a panoply of faux beings and civilizations to life. Contrasting the darker themes of his paintings is always a sliver of playfulness, bringing a sense of humor to otherwise chaotic and morose subjects. Unfortunately, there is a sense that the colorful beings of Lamb’s paintings seem tragically doomed to realize the same fate of violence and flaws of human behavior that we see in our world today.
Timothy Lamb is a Los Angeles based artist recognized for his achievements for his work in the animation industry over the last decade. He studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco before entering into animation art in the capacities of art direction, visual development and character design.

Animals find solace in an imaginative haven now void of human impact. They have formed complex social structures amongst an entirely cohesive landscape.
A world now on the road to rehabilitation accommodates a rediscovered sense of spirituality once hidden in hallowed symbolism. Revelations of creature characteristics are unveiled to an audience of human onlookers.
Empyrean is a glimpse into a visual narrative that encapsulates the harmoniousness of nature.
Kane Kokaris is a self taught artist from Gold Coast, Australia. His paintings are imaginative, stylised and often dark. Influences vary from nature and wildlife, to tattoo culture. He looks to partially tell a story within each composition, giving creatures a dreamlike world of their own. Although most tales are seemingly ill-fated, capturing the beauty in the darkest of moments is his main desire. Exposing viewers to images which evoke their own symbolic meaning and encourage them to let their imagination run free.

Arresting in its body of water to land, the coast is welcoming and at times waves a farewell. The separation of boundaries is where we connect when reaching our destination from coast to coast. This exhibit is the physical and spiritual representation of what this means to these five artists.
