Tim Daly
Hoboken, NJ

Artwork Details
Johnson Avenue, J.C.


Tim Daly attended the School of Visual Arts in NYC and is a four-time recipient of fellowship grants for graphics and painting from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.  Daly's art features realist landscape paintings of various sites in urban Hudson County and the Hackensack Meadowlands, in light ranging from late afternoon through dusk, and into deep night.  His inspiration is drawn from mostly unseen landscapes in the New York and New Jersey Metro area.

According to Daly, “while landscape is the image, the real subject is the light, natural and artificial, and how it feels on and delineates these places. A certain tension is created, a psychological space where something else is happening unseen.” The poet James Ruggia has written, “On the surface, one is simply impressed with Daly's skill at rendering a believable reality. But, there is a vision at work which makes these paintings seduce on a more mysterious level. An empty sheet takes on the mysterious quality of a deserted stage. The details have a ritual power.”

Daly's work has received numerous showings in New York and New Jersey and is represented in many collections, including those of Coopers and Lybrand in Newark, Malcolm Forbes in NYC, Prudential Insurance Co. in Newark, Rutgers University in New Brunswick, and the writer Nick Tosches in NYC.  In 2002, he was commissioned by NJ Transit to create thirty-two mural paintings for the Secaucus Transfer Station in Secaucus, NJ.
