Canadian sculptor Timothy Paul Schmalz creates sculptures primarily in bronze.
For more than thirty years, Tim has been “visually translating” sacred scripture and bringing forth spiritual artwork that presents authentic representations.
After dropping out of art college at the age of 19, Schmalz lived in his small studio in Toronto.
“I had no heat in my first old studios, no washrooms, and just a simple board to sleep on. For years I lived like that. It was during this time that I stripped myself of all distractions and material concerns; I did art for art’s sake. And through an amazing journey, I realized that in order to have a great work of art, I needed epic subject matter.”
Tim believes that sculpture is just the skin that covers an idea, a belief, and a truth. As an artist, he is dedicated to making this skin as thin and transparent as possible so the art does not get in the way of what is being expressed.
