Tim Nowlin is a painter and printmaker whose work explores memory and how new meanings are generated through the recombination of discarded elements. Nowlin is the current Head of the Department of Art and Art History, where he has been a Professor since 1994, teaching classes in Painting and Drawing. His educational background is in traditional printmaking, though he has devoted the better part of his studio practice since the mid 1990s to painting. He has exhibited his paintings throughout Western Canada and abroad in Switzerland and Germany. Returning to his roots in printmaking, his most recent project explores digital printing in works that also incorporate his long-time interest in collage and bricolage. Nowlin has found digital technologies to be indispensable in exploring the possibilities of collage as a medium. In addition to his studio practice, administration and teaching duties, in 2015 and 2016 he served as Guest Lecturer and Visiting Artist at the Hubei Institute of Fine Arts in Wuhan, China, an international exchange that will also continue in 2017.
