Tim Tate “Positive Progression” 2003 glass, clay, collection of F. Lennox Campello

For Valentine’s Day, we look at one of Tim Tate’s mixed media works – “Positive Progression”. The work was part of his 2003 Seized Moments…Captured Memories exhibit at Fraser Gallery.With the upcoming international glass + clay exhibit at Edison Place Gallery opening March 1 – this day’s post is a perfect time to reflect on how some of the artists involved took the combination of the medias to heart…

Washington Post art critic Michael O’Sullivan wrote of the work at the time:  Tate’s heart work is certainly nothing new to those who have been following his career of late, especially those who have seen his work at Renwick Gallery, which owns one of his pieces. “Seized Moments,” however, shows Tate pushing himself in new directions. One especially autobiographical piece from this show, titled “Positive Progression” and consisting of a clear glass heart that seems to wither away into a crude clay stump, is especially fine. It isn’t pretty by any means, as Tate’s work usually is, but it sure is powerful.”
