About the Artist
Loss, grief, fear of the unknown, and the foreboding persistence of mortality weigh heavy on her existence. Art is May's mechanism for coping with dreadful and unsettling emotions that stem from the harsh realities of humanity. Endlessly fascinated by ecosystems; she finds obscure beauty in decay, and incessantly seeks answers to the age-old question, ‘What is the meaning of life?’ Working in mixed media, she explores visual contrast by merging fluid and organic forms with imagery hinging on the grotesque. Born in Los Angeles, May has lived in the Bay Area since she was two and is currently based in Oakland. Her work has been featured at the de Young and SFMOMA museum stores in San Francisco, under the name TIMMY MAYS.
