It is only with the heart that one can see rightly…
What is essential is invisible to the eye…

I’m pleased to announce that the printed processes have started on produced work. I’m finishing what I’ve left undone. To follow these processes keep an eye out for my blog by clicking the symbols I’ve inserted on this website.

I am currently working on a new body of work “Dot”. A photo-geological survey (of sorts) of the earth’s surface and outer atmosphere. For now my research includes: A series of adaptive orbital photographs and personal experiments of/with rudimentary surfaces, such as rock-faces and photosensitive surfaces. I’m looking to stay in Nepal over a period of a month for research and production. For this reason I am looking to find interesting collaborations with partners and insitutes operating withinnthe arts and science community. The rest is history, here I go!

Leave a note.



The work of Timothy Zwitser explores and utilizes natural phenomena in order to capture an authentic (sensory) experience. It is reminiscent of a more primordial time; one of connection with our natural environment through prolongued observation and attention. While the visual appearance of his works often reminds us of modernist and abstract painting, it is his emotional awareness in combination with a use of new technologies that propel the work into the contemporary, making visible a place that is too often overlooked in the murmur of everyday life.
