“Traces Of Memory” Tim Tate and Michael Janis, 2020, 6′-0″H x 9′-0″H, mixed media, cast glass


“Traces of Memory” – a new contemporary collaborative work by Tim Tate and Michael Janis that attempts to capture a sense of the passage of time and memories both personal and collective. The first collaboration was a huge sensation at SOFA Chicago, and now the two artists have come together again to make this thoughtful work in a new soft aqua pallet. The new installation will be unveiled at Habatat Galleries‘ Art Palm Beach contemporary art fair January 30- Feb 03, 2020.

The associative nature of memory seeks to create a formal structure, introducing brief scenes that feel like reveries; soft around the edges, unencumbered by detail. When we think of the past it’s the beautiful things we focus on. We want to believe it was all like that.

“Each inset glass panel here, whether direct or obtuse, tells a compelling story of life. We leave room in our sculpture for the viewers memories and interpretation to find a home.” – Tim Tate & Michael Janis
