Timothy Murdoch is an artist whose works range from hand-carved recycled polyethylene gas pipe to site-specific and kinetic installations. Tim’s work, incorporating repurposed material, explores the meaning of the “stuff” in this world, whether manufactured or natural. He graduated from Montserrat College of Art in 1989 and received his MFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2003. His work has been shown in galleries across the country and internationally. His most recent works are environmentally conscious and focus on bringing attention to the welfare of a sustainable ecosystem. Timothy has received numerous grants and completed more than a dozen public art commissions. He is currently working on two public commissions, one for the Port of San Diego and the other for the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture. "I try to push the limits of materials, but also the limits for interface with those materials. I’ve created sculptures that transform a viewer’s expectation of space, utilized public store-fronts to confront the general passerby with psychological questions, harnessed the power of the ocean’s tides to fuel a kinetic installation, and mined the desert sands to create diamonds."
