Only in Paris does Mr Biskup dare break out the purple shirt...

LA's resident cartoon Pop artist turned neo-cubist, TIM BISKUP unveiled a new approach to his usual painting style when he debuted a series of paintings displayed on integrated custom built pedestals in a series called "O/S Operating System" at ADDICT GALERIE in Paris late last week. Each of the twelve pieces in the exhibition are self contained units which include an original painting packed into its own shipping crate along with an elaborate pedestal that can be assembled using parts that come inside the crate as well as the crate itself. These "systems," as the artist calls them, constitute a fusion of Biskup's aesthetic style and his conceptual theories. The pieces are intended to represent the interconnection between art itself and the peripheral elements that allow it to exist. As a metaphor, the "systems" ask the question of weather the peripheral elements actually add to or distract from the artwork being presented. Also available at the exhibition—as somewhat of an unintentional souvenir of the artist's older painting style—is a large scale 30-color serigraph of Biskup's "Tree Of Life" painting originally created as the cover of "American Cyclops," a catalog of artwork from an exhibition of the same name that took place at Iguapop Gallery in Barcelona in July of 2006.
