Timothy Harney's paintings reflect a sense of the passage of time, bringing the viewer into a private world that is mixed with a contemplative calm. Formal compositional decisions married with emotion and imaginative detail give way to greater humanistic conditions. References to art history and his connection to family are prevalent throughout. Harney’s collage work provides an in depth look at the artist’s creative process and exemplify the tradition of miniatures. He earned his BFA and MFA from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Works by Harney have a place in many private and corporate collection and he has participated in shows at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, DeCordova Museum, and Fitchburg Art Museum. In 2001, Timothy Harney was included in the notable Painting in Boston: 1950-2000 exhibition at DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA.
