Timothy Chapman

According to Timothy Chapman: “The look of this work owes a lot of my fondness for earlier styles of depicting animals, particularly the copperplate engravings that illustrated Buffon’s Natural History (begun in 1766), as well as Victorian animal portraiture and old scientific illustration.  I have tried to present similarly earnest, but basically inaccurate, renderings of animals by using humor, irony and a surrealistic sensibility that is not available to the scientist.  What I want most is to impart to the viewer a sense of wonder and strangeness that nature photography and video, in spite of their inherent capacity for precision, cannot.”  In 2014, Chapman was selected by the U. S. State Department to travel to Nairobi, Kenya in its artist exchange program called ‘Art in Embassies’.
