Timothy Rose has been creating mobile sculpture for more than 30 years. First inspired by the work of Alexander Calder, he began exhibiting professionally in 1965.
He has lived in Japan, Mexico, and Paris. It was while living in Paris that the work of Wassily Kandinsky began to influence his ideas and sculpture. Particularly inspiring was Kandinsky's later work, consisting of small drawings of overlapping layers of floating hard-edged shapes. What followed was a body of work breaking away from the Calderesque rhythms.
Later, back in Sausalito, California, Rose developed a passion for figure drawing. The result, combined with a maturing vision, has resulted in the present collections. It is here that the viewer sees a more sensuous, highly varied group of mobiles, often colorful, that combine the engineering of a Calder work with the humor and liveliness of artwork characteristic of California. He presently works in his studio on Mare Island, near San Francisco.
