‘Duality’ By Valerie Timmons

When painter Valerie Timmons wins an award, she’ll have her acceptance speech ready: “Thank you, Henri Matisse.” The greats inspired her love of abstraction. “Frankenthaler, Rothko, Kline, Richter, Kandinsky, Miro,” she said. “Their work was a revelation.” Her personal style further developed through photography and Photoshop. “I hit on a combination of adjustments and filters that yielded an exciting geometric composition I thought would make a dynamite painting. Then I painted it, and thus began my fascination with geometric abstraction. And color! Rich, saturated color.”
