Tim Kennedy lives in Bloomington, Indiana. His paintings fall solidly into the tradition of painterly American realism that prizes the particular and the empirical. The paintings celebrate life as it is experienced through the senses by allowing the viewer to examine a sharply observed, yet ordinary event. The unspoken subject at the center of the paintings is the connection between people and the connection of people to their surroundings - whether the figure is the primary subject of the work or whether the subject consists of landscape views, objects or interiors.
Kennedy studied painting at Carnegie_Melon University, The Skowhegan School and received his MFA from Brooklyn College where he studied with Lennart Anderson. He teaches Painting at Indiana University in Bloomington.
