Timothy Vermeulen:

Timothy Vermeulen’s narrative paintings use the framework of famous pieces of literature to explore deeper issues around the self, the spiritual, and socioeconomic conflicts. Vermeulen’s theatrical vignettes “symbolize internal states, social conflicts, and past traumas…unsettling, disquieting circumstances that speak to the mysterious and contradictory nature of existence.” His most recent exhibition, at Packer Schopf in 2010, explored these personal narratives through the literal and symbolic world of Herman Melville’s 1851 classic, Moby Dick. Vermeulen earned his MFA from the University of Illinois: Champaign in 1986, and is currently represented in Chicago by Packer Schopf Gallery.
