Timothy Curtis’s “Temporary Decisions Inkblots and Bikes” @ Arndt Art Agency, Berlin
Timothy Curtis's

Although bicycles are the chosen pictorial symbol, they convey emotional entanglements in the newest works of Timothy Curtis. Bikes, at least to me, equate freedom of movement, a way to get from place to place with a bit of ease, a pleasant breeze along the way. When done for sport, they channel speed and precision. For Temporary Decisions Inkblots and Bikes, the bikes seem to wrap around each other and get snarled by their own gears, no longer freewheeling, but hampered and stymied. It’s a powerful body of work, reflecting Curtis’ personal story and our current collective confinement
