"For Sydney based artist Tim Silver, time is the conceptual and material kernel of his practice. Made from entropic materials, Silver’s sculptures usually begin dying the moment they are born. They denounce the striving towards permanence that sculpture has historically embodied and echo the human condition.By photographically articulating the passage of decay, each stage of decomposition is rendered permanent."
Tim Silver completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney in 1997 and a Master of Fine Arts by research from the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales in 2004. His solo exhibitions include exhibitions at Breenspace, Sydney and The Tuvaluan Project, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne 2008. Group shows include the 47th Art Salon, City of Belgrade, Serbia 2006.
