One of my favorite styles of artwork is collage art. I love the concept behind collage work, combining various elements together to create a story or paint a picture. A couple of years ago, I featured some collage art that I came across from one of my favorite vendors at the Atlanta mart, Paragon. The collage pieces from their artist were so dynamic and interesting. Little did I know that the artist behind these works lives right here in Atlanta and is a fellow designer with many of the same passions as me. This talented designer is Timothy Burney and I recently had the opportunity to view some of his newest work. All I can say is Amazing!!!!
I can’t wait to share a few of my favorite pieces from his collection with you, but first let me tell you a bit about this artist. Timothy was born and raised in Mississippi and has a love for photography and design. He is fascinated by ‘objets’ and incorporates them into is work. Timothy was an antique dealer for 20 years and many of his ‘objets’ were purchased during his travels to England and France (I want to go) which makes his art even more unique because they are one-of-a-kind. In addition to the incredible shadow box art that Timothy creates he also produces beautiful pieces from his photography and a selection of unique clocks. Many of his pieces are available only to the trade thru Paragon but he does have a website where you can view and buy his work.
Now, on to the eye candy…
This Chopin bust collage is incredible. I love the mix of antique pieces that add so much dimension and visual interest.
This piece really speaks to the collector in me. The antique ruler and architectural rendering are awesome. Just what every designer needs for their studio.
Another tug on my heartstrings. I love buttons, especially vintage ones and this display is really fun.
This is one of the clocks made for the Paragon collection. Wouldn’t this look great as part of a gallery wall?
How about this collection of vintage clocks under glass! I so love!
A vintage letter & envelopes dating back to the early 1900′s.
Another one-of-a-kind collage piece combining vintage documents, art and findings.
This set of Johnson Bros. bowls with a silver spoon would be so beautiful in a kitchen or dining room. I love Johnson Bros. and have purchased several pieces when I’ve been out antiquing.
Beautiful French ornamental pieces mounted on top of old documents.
And I so adore this framed antique clock face. Pretty cool!
You have to take a moment to check out all the art and photography on the TimothyBDesign website. I promise you’ll be inspired and want to buy a piece.
And, for those of you that live in Atlanta, Timothy just opened a space in the new Westside Market on Ellsworth Industrial. This new market is a collection of vintage and antique dealers and showcases a few of my favorite dealers like Parker Kennedy. I haven’t had a chance to visit the market in person but plan a trip next week to check it out and will be sure to take lots of pics.
Until next time…
