Tim Hovde was born in North Dakota. From 1983 to 1989 he studied music, photography and art. In 1992 he moved to Arizona where he worked and studied for a degree in Graphic Design. Since 1985, Hovde has used a varied practice of music, painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture to explore the complex relationship between art, life and nature. Stating: “I have found that I am able to translate the reality in nature into paintings that are visually appealing as abstractions, yet remain true to the essence of my subject.”
Hovde’s work investigates the challenge of taking imagery from nature, and experiencing the difficulties of translating those perceived reconciliations into a new experience.
The “Infinity” series explores depth and space and that which is in-between. In each painting Hovde applies overlapping layers of color, back to front, over and over, leaving and infinite impression.
