CB1: Timothy Nolan – The Constant Speed of Light


Running through December 19th, Timothy Nolan’s vibrant solo show at CB1 Gallery in DTLA fuses photography and collage to make a painting of depth and vibrancy.


“My works basically start with collage. I made a whole series last year and printed out a few like these. Once I figured out the possibilities, I spent more time scanning and manipulating the images than on the collage itself,” Nolan states.


“In the end, it’s a printed collage-based image painting,” Nolan says. “The pieces are about the language of painting. I have a connection with minimal abstract art, and I’m really interested in mixing different visual languages.” Nolan has been working with patterns for 30 years.


Originally from New York, the California-based artist uses landscape terrain photos that he shot as well as photos from old books.

His pieces are visually stimulating, kaleidoscopic, and startling in their juxtapositions. Stop in and have a look – CB1 is in the newly burgeoning South Santa Fe Ave. arts district just south of DTLA, at  1923 S. Santa Fe Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90021
