Timothy Hawkesworth has received considerable critical attention over the last 25 years. His work encapsulates the essence of art as communication, particularly beyond the limitations of habitual speech patterns. Hawkesworth's paintings and drawings tap into the experience of being human -- with all of the trials of existing naturally within a social context. Using his many years of figurative painting as a point of departure, the Irish-born artist creates a visceral map of a single image that is reminiscent of the boundless energy of his native country's lush landscapes. But representational art is not lost in the midst of Hawkesworth's abstractionist action painting. It is only made more real by the expression of the internal energy that encompasses the subject's outward appearance. In both the artist's large, expansive paintings and smaller works on paper, there is a sense of urgency and erratically charged presence that requires the viewer to wonder if the representation is purer by virtue of it appearing to be of a primal instinct and stream of consciousness. Hawkesworth's art captures the human dilemma of existing physically and emotionally. No wonder this Haverford, PA, artist can be found in the noted collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. -- Marisa Mariscotti
