You Don’t Know The Whole Thing
You Don't Know The Whole Thing is a new temporary, site--‐specific painting/drawing--‐based installation by Philadelphia--‐based painter, Tim McFarlane at Poggenpohl--‐Philadelphia, a German luxury kitchen design showroom located in Old City. You Don't Know… is centered on themes of memory and transmission of information and asks the viewer to interpret context and specific meanings for themselves. It is a piece that was partially inspired by McFarlane’s recent project at the Cherry Street Pier in April 2019, where he was able to make a large, 10 x12 foot work on panel on--‐site that was meant to be experienced for a limited amount of time. You Don’t Know The Whole Thing represents an offshoot of Tim’s studio practice that explores his interest in the temporary, chance and change in his paintings. He approached this project at Poggenpohl with the mind--‐set that this is a temporary piece whose parts will be used for other works once the show is concluded.
Gallery Artist Tim McFarlane was featured in the Vast Parlor Blog by Brian Aufdenberg, about his art career.
"When I first moved to Philadelphia in the autumn of 2004 I knew about three or four people who lived here. I was not adjusting well to be honest, and that was for a list to long to go over here. One of those reasons was being so new and not knowing where to start when it came to arts, culture, and food. One night, one of my regulars at the cafe I was working in invited me to come to an event they were promoting. Little did I know it would change my time in Philadelphia forever. Once there I met some pretty awesome people who shared a lot of the same interests as me. Add in that they were around my age, and not really associated at all with the social circles I was in and it was such a relief...."
Tim McFarlane's recent installation in the "Response Gallery" at the Delaware Contemporary is featured by the Broad Street Review!
"Here, uncurated, theme-free art was publicly created by local artists, community members, and museum visitors, who signed up for time slots (adhering to COVID-19 guidelines). Gallery walls are covered with white paper, and the visual contributions on them vary widely. Some are small sketches; others are bold, large, and graffiti-inspired. There’s an intricate, moving pen-and-ink mural titled “We are all connected” that covers an entire wall; artist Tim McFarlane created another resonant wall-sized work."
