The Falcon Power pop-up art project is a collaboration between New York metropolitan area developers and local artists.
Falcon Power remains at the magnificent space at 1414 Grand Street in Hoboken from June to September 2016 for an exciting exhibition featuring the paintings of Tim Daly and Roy Kinzer, and a site-specific installation by KC Tidemand. The exhibition, Formless Threads & Stratified Dimensions
, presents a study into the nature of urban rhythms, architectural structure, and unreal dimensions.
Press release for FormlessThreads & Stratified Dimensions
The collision between mass industrialization and the natural world has been the basis of much of Tim Daly’s paintings and drawings for the past three decades.
Tim Daly was born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey; his home and studio are in Hoboken. He was known early on for his paintings of the mostly unseen landscape surrounding Jersey City and the Meadowlands, and the urban industrial landscape of the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. His subject matter has expanded to include the rest of the world. Here's the artist's description of a favorite memory that epitomizes the Meadowlands, the subject of many of his paintings:
Walking down a narrow trail between the phragmites reeds, turning a corner and coming face to face with a great blue heron that was as surprised as I was. Five feet tall with an 18″ beak, he spread enormous wings and with two slow, noisy wing beats rose straight above me.
Tim Daly has exhibited extensively. For more information about Tim Daly, visit his Web site: www.timdaly.artspan.com
Roy Kinzer has been making and teaching art for over 20 years. He has an extensive exhibition record and frequently completes commissions for art consultants, corporations and private collectors. He is a past recipient of the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Artist Grant. He holds a Certificate of Art from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and an MFA
from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
His current series of paintings is titled White Noise.
Here is the artist's description of the work:
My paintings are fractal landscapes and cityscapes derived from digitally altered topographical maps and satellite images. I work in the tradition of the Hudson River School Luminist painters, who used perspective, magnified scale and dramatic lighting to explore the Sublime, the feeling of rapture or awe caused by the beauty and terror of nature. I use Luminist techniques of color and solarization and apply the aesthetics of fractal patterns to simulate a view of earth as taken from a satellite.

KC Tidemand is an artist and educator, originally from Norway. She received her Bachelor's degree in Studio Art and Philosophy from Skidmore College and her Masters in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in NYC in 2015.
Tidemand’s artwork deals with the notion of production and expansion, drawing influence from the polarity between reductive and emergent systems; where the former is characterized by its hierarchical networks while the latter is a decentralized web of connectivity. Using these two different systems as a tableau for the work, she plays with the limits of their visual properties and through this, explores how they affect our behavior, through liberation or restriction.
Tidemand is a founding member of Art Theory Project, an art collective focused on bringing a contemporary art dialogue to the local communities and schools in NYC. She has shown internationally, including several galleries in Norway and the United States. She lives and works in New York City.
