Silda Wall Spitzer and Tim Jones
Silda Wall Spitzer and Tim Jones’ creative partnership pairs two artists realizing their shared dream of creating large-scale sculptures. In their “no rules” artistic approach, Tim and Silda utilize various found and new materials in particular stainless steel, stone, wood, and glass. The incorporation of objects and materials from their local area’s past and nature by-repurposing, recycling. and rethinking is a defining characteristic of their works. While some of their pieces deliver pointed, thought provoking messages, and others reveal their own stories, often with humor. As Tim tells it “It’s great when two people can look at something being moved around for the right visual, and they are both saying “No, no, no, – Yes!” at the very same time, every time.
