Tim Main

The Messengers

06 - 27 September 23

The belief that art is a craft based tool for the study of consciousness underpins Tim Mains practice. His works are the expression of his observations of the order and purpose in nature, and embody a desire to understand the sublime secret of creation.

Made of reclaimed oak and ceramic, these sculptures are an exploration of form and pattern. The circular constructions are a core component of Mains work, symbolising wholeness and timelessness.

The influence of folk arts straightforward worship of nature is also evident in this body of work. The Messengers, in this case the Piwakawaka Fantail and the Tuke Wren, act as condutis between the terrestrial and celestial realms.
