Drawings to Cut Loose

I am trying a new thing to raise some quick cash: auctioning some of my best original figure drawings from the last few years. For the next 10 weeks I'll sell one drawing per week to the highest bidder. So you could be able to pick up a good, fairly large drawing for very little if you are interested. Look for "Tim Holmes" drawing on eBay. I will try to make each auction close on Saturday each week, maybe about noon, Eastern time.

I have been teaching figure drawing at the Holter Museum of Art for the last several years, emphasizing expression rather than naturalism.  Some are from other series as well- a mix of various approaches. This drawing (ink, pastel, pencil; and about 24 x 18 inches,) is last in the series, called "All is Vibrance".

Hey, thanks for reading these posts!

I'm a sculptor/filmmaker living in Montana, USA. I am using art to move the evolution of humanity forward into an increasingly responsive, inclusive and interactive culture. As globalization flattens peoples into a capitalist monoculture I hope to use my art to celebrate historical cultural differences and imagine how we can co-create a rich future together.

I see myself as an artist/philosopher laboring deep in the mines of joy. I've had a good long career of exhibiting work around the world and working on international outreach projects, most notably being the first American to be invited to present a one-person exhibit in the Hermitage Museum. Recently I have turned my attention from simply making metal sculpture to creating films and workshops for engaging communities directly, tinkering with the very ideas and mechanisms behind cultural transformation. I feel that as we face tragic world crises, if the human species favors our imaginative and creative capacities we can cultivate a rich world to enjoy.

For me the deepest satisfaction in making art comes in engaging people's real life concerns rather than providing simple entertainment or decoration. Areas of conflict or tension are particularly ripe for the kind of transformative power that art uniquely carries. I invite any kind of challenge that serves people on a deep level.
