About Timothy
To me the most interesting and inspiring thing aspect of  new york is how your perspective is created by the level you exist at, physically, and psychically. most of my inspiration comes to me while traveling on my way to my destinations, New York is an amazing town for that.  You can walk, take the train, be underground/overground, cross rivers, see skylines, all on your way to work. Here’s a few things I see on my way to my travels around town.

The view from the JMZ train. The only train that crosses the East River over the Williamsburg bridge, it's a stunning, graphic entry/exit, which brings us to another amazing part of New York..Bridges...

The High Line is an amazing architectural achievement, building a massive park on a disused elevated subway..it's possibly the more beautiful piece of public works recently completed in Manhattan. I actually prefer the view from the highline than the park itself, giving the chelsea area a feel of a scene from Bladerunner if it had a kiddie park built into it.

I live in chinatown, in the lower section of manhattan. It's one of the most densely populated areas in the world, which makes for amazing people watching. The inhabitants re-use [and inadvertantly re-contextualize] any and all material left around. Here is a perfect example of that. He Loves Dub.

The view of Manhattan from Brooklyn. I live in Manhattan, it's a claustrophobic place but feels like a small community. Only when I leave the island do i get the perspective of how massive and beautiful it is.

It's hard describe the experience of walking across a bridge in New York, but let's say, people wise, it's where you are likely to see a jogging hasidic woman pushing a baby carriage trying to avoid being run over by a fixed gear bicyclist barreling down at 60MPH.

These guys in Lower East Side are called the "BirdMen". Each weekened these elderly Chinese folk bring their pet birds out to sing in the park to one another. This day it was cold, hence the Bird-coseys.

Chris Ballantyne’s work focuses on vernacular architecture and observation of the American landscape.  Banal features of suburban and industrial zones are sources for paintings that highlight the quirky and absurd.  Ballantyne states that, “Growing up in a military family and moving to different parts of the country, there was a certain familiarity to the kinds of houses and neighborhoods. They were a series of suburban developments built in separate regions of the country, always on the outskirts of larger cities, at the exit ramps of interstate highways, and all very similar in age and design.  My own notions of space developed out of this cultural landscape which was striving for an indidvidual sense of personal space,  consciously economic, and somewhere between urban and rural.” Dysfunctional structures are flawless in their strangeness, made beautiful through symmetry, simplified lines and flat, subdued colors. Ballantyne eliminates detail to emphasize the subtleties of the way we experience space and our attempts at containment. He extends these concepts further by expanding the imagery of his paintings beyond the picture plane and onto the surrounding walls. “Most of my works involve combinations of various places, drawn from memory. As well, my own interests in skateboarding and surfing altered how I saw  the use of these structures ranging from empty pools, sidewalk curbs, to ocean jetties in a way that tied in to my sense of this larger push and pull between culture and nature.” With shrewd restraint, Ballantyne accentuates the antisocial effects of our built environment with a hint of humor and plenty of ambiguity. A curious emptiness permeates the work of Chris Ballantyne. Graphically rendered buildings, pools, parking lots, and fences take on new meanings and amplified significance, isolated on flat fields of color.
