Tim Gardner uses watercolor to depict young men clowning around—stuffing beer cans down their shorts, streaking through the woods, or otherwise indulging their youth—subjects derived from photographs sent from his siblings and friends. As a foil to their crude behavior, Gardner incorporates majestic Canadian landscapes, seducing viewers with mountains and wildflowers. Tension between man and his surroundings is palpable throughout his oeuvre. In more recent works, Gardner’s subjects’ have matured and they often appear as lonely figures, either in nature or amidst New York cityscapes; in Boy in Park (2009), a young man walks through Central Park, seemingly oblivious to the world beyond himself.
