Timothy Nolan's work has a quiet elegance about it. Geometric, intentional, thoughtful. His palette is restricted, formal, sophisticated and leaves you with shape and form.

While looking through his portfolio, I came across some older work that I think is just as fresh now as when it was made.

Watercolor and gouache on mulberry paper

For me, this is the true test of an artist, the arc of their career and any cross-discipline practices. Nolan has this in spades. He draws with tape on walls, with gouache and watercolor on mulberry paper, and with adhesive vinyl on glass.

His sculptures are elaborate, structured and ethereal.

If you are flying in or out of the Los Angeles International Airport anytime between now and the end of August, you can see Nolan's work in Terminal 2.
