Press Release

Tim Lokiec’s new body of work employs a faux aesthetic of painterly ease; emphasis is placed on the formal concerns of composition, geometry, and psilocybin design principles. In these oil paintings, Lokiec creates an evocative surface with foggy passages that satisfy a playful simplicity. His imagery draws upon dance music references, the internet, and the collective drawing zine he publishes with friends. His use of projection and repetitive re-painting, as well as a tendency towards abstraction, articulate his attempts at a kind of painterly thoughtlessness.
