Twenty Four Twenty Statement 

 

Timothy Briner’s exhibition, Twenty Four Twenty, looks at the artist’s studio as a conflicted space – one that functions as both emotional sanctuary and unintended fortress. Initially, Briner’s struggle with depression drew him into the studio and gallery space at 24-20 Jackson Avenue as an escape from the outside world. It became his canvas – its core components and architecture a place for introspection.

Briner pairs traditionally printed photographs with interventions into the space, positioning the psychological impact of its design as a framework that ultimately perpetuates his emotional struggle. In an unfortunate, endless cycle, what was once a haven and source of escape has become a trap.
