Tim Sandow's content-related imagery is fed by the tragedy of the everyday, which can only be captured through the sensitive observation of human gestures and situations.
The artist from Wuppertal develops a distanced, yet not self-exclusive position for himself as a viewer by means of disconcerting depictions of the persons depicted.
This allows him to act without any classification. Sandow's works refer to the quiet nuances of everyday interaction that are so often the source of very personal anecdotes.
Tim Sandow, born 1988, lives and works in Wuppertal, Germany. He graduated from the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien, 2019.
