Philadelphia-based artist Timmy Graham takes fourth dimensionalism on a color journey as he fuses math and science with art in his massive oil paintings. Inspired by the theory of relativity, color relates to measured distances on the electromagnetic spectrum as every brushstroke becomes an individual plane. "All colors in a spectrum when encountered by light produce their own wavelength... Therefore all colors are spatial elements and distinct in their own right." While the Fourth Dimension has its roots in the mid-1700s, Graham's experimentation ushered a new approach to his art making process. Viewers are invited to visualize the paint's height, width, length, and depth as it steps off the canvas and extends into another dimension in space. At first glance one sees geometric patterns and symbols. After close inspection one finds figures, gods and goddesses, some dancing with snakes or dagger-wielding archetypes. Graham includes symbols of dominance and oppression. Sexual and spiritual foundations release a higher state of being and social commentary.
