Synopsis: The book of art work contains descriptive works in three parts. The first section contains a run of 'stills' from an imaginary screen play the artist conjured up. Over time, as the images developed, a sequence of chronological flow, time and story ensued. This all happened by accident but eventually he was able to incorporate all the images into a WWII screen play with two separate operating theaters, Indo-Europe and North Africa. Somehow he managed to weave a story line of five disparted girls and the dilemma of the father being forced to develop biological warfare for the Germans. This is exemplified by the intertwined bug motif. ---- The second section consists of text by the author and links illustrations to the folk tales. It basically was an exercise to prepare for a further book at a later date. ---- The third section remains simply a smorgasbord of backlogged work from the time period 1987-2000. These were included to show the scope and range of his ability. ---- About the Author: The artist, Tim Anthony was raised in Minnesota and studied at the U of M in the late 1960's, majoring in Psych, Humanities and Art. ---- After another stint out East studying oriental medicine by attending what is now the Kushi Institute in Becket, Massachusetts; he returned to Minnesota and engaged in an alternate life style, settling on small contracted jobs in order to support more artistic but non-paying endeavors. ---- After some time was devoted to the art world again and in lieu of pursuing a degree due to circumstance, he decided to simply put together a folio sampling of work in book form. He thought it may sell and solve the dilemma of making a living from fine art. What has since entered into his art work is a sense of drama from life experiences including literary and film influences. ---- Aside from real world dealings, his retreat to hunting and fishing put a scenic touch to some of his work. Additionally, his landscapes were influenced by a Swedenborg, George Innes supernaturalism, his still lifes by a Chardin like sensorium and the abstracts by a Kadinsky type chaos. ---- The artist's imagination added to the illustrative feel for the images by coupling text and folk tale and by being a double cancer. He likes mythology.
