Tim Westbury

Having worked as an artist for almost four decades, I don’t differentiate between my practice and my life. I am a voracious non-fiction reader and a lifelong collector of several specific types of objects, images and materials. In my studio, I gradually transform and combine these disparate elements into sculptural constructions or mixed-media drawings, through a process of accretion. With a theoretical grounding in cultural studies, my studio research is generally motivated by a critical examination of systematized forms of knowledge – written language, cartography and scientific materialism. I maintain my practice through work as a graphic designer and arts administrator (previously at The New Gallery, Calgary and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity). I also play the drums.
