Requiems Honoring Innovators

Abstract Expressionist PaulTim, says his first memory of creating art was when he was 4 years old. I would draw magical worlds on the condensation of a window. Today his "window" is a digital screen using techniques many Hollywood's special effects companies such as; Industrial Light & Magic, and Pixar use to create his fine art images. Paul first started designing broadcast animations rendered on VAX 780 1 mip mini supercomputers during the mid-1980's for Cranston Csuri Productions. Co-Founder of Cranston Csuri, Charles Csuri is recognized as the Father of Digital Art and Computer Animation by Smithsonian and MoMa. While at Cranston Csuri, Paul designed motion graphics for ABC, CBS, Disney, MTV, NBC, WCBS, and designed the first motion graphics of the Paul Rand designed IBM logo through IBM Agency, Lord Geller Federico, Einstein.

Paul was an adjunct professor of computer art & animation and design of cinematography at CCAD from 1992 to 2008. He became a Computer Graphics Pioneer member of SIGGRAPH in 2012. Paul has served as a judge for the Academy for Interactive and Visual Arts for the past ten years.

PaulTim's Art is available for exhibition and acquisition.

Direct Method

PaulTim , 2020 June

91.44 X 91.44 cm

Abstract Expressionism

Dedicated to Jerome Karle was born 18 June 1918, in New York City, NY. He began his university education at City College of New York, followed by Harvard University.

One of his first jobs was an assignment on the Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb. In 1968 Karle became the Naval Research (NRL's) chief scientist for the Laboratory for the Structure of Matter.

His search for an easier way to make fine structure of crystalline materials measurements led to developing the "direct method" of X-ray diffraction with Herbert A. Hauptman.

For this work, he and Hauptman were awarded the 1985 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

Abstract Expressionism

Sir Joseph John Thomson, born -18 December 1856 – 30 August 1940) was an English physicist and Nobel laureate in physics, credited with the discovery and identification of the electron; and with the discovery of the first subatomic particle.

Thomson was known for his work as a mathematician, where he was recognized as an exceptional talent.

He was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1906.


PaulTim – 0 January 0000

95 X 54 cm

Dedicated to Brahmagupta

Born c. 598 CE, died c. 668 CE) was an Indian mathematician and astronomer.

Brahmagupta's Brahmasphuṭasiddhanta is the first book that provides rules for arithmetic manipulations that apply to zero and to negative numbers. The Brahmasphutasiddhanta is the earliest known text to treat zero as a number in its own right, rather than as simply a place holder digit in representing another number as was done by the Babylonians or as a symbol for a lack of quantity as was done by Ptolemy and the Romans.

Factoid: Most eras used with Hindu and Buddhist calendars, such as the Saka era or the Kali Yuga, begin with the year 0

Tuxedo Park

Alfred Lee Loomis (November 4, 1887 – August 11, 1975) was an American attorney, investment banker, philanthropist, scientist/physicist, inventor of the LORAN Long Range Navigation System, and a lifelong patron of scientific research. He established the Loomis Laboratory in Tuxedo Park, New York, and his role in the development of radar and the atomic bomb is considered vital to the Allied victory in World War II. He invented the Aberdeen Chronograph for measuring muzzle velocities, contributed significantly to the development of a ground-controlled approach technology for aircraft, and participated in preliminary meetings of the Manhattan Project. Loomis also made contributions to biological instrumentation. Working with Edmund Newton Harvey he co-invented the microscope centrifuge, and pioneered techniques for electroencephalography. In 1937, he discovered the sleep K-complex brainwave.

Hot Pi 1

PaulTim – 14 March 2017

90 X 90 cm

Dedicated to Albert Einstein, was born on March 14, 1879.

Work was inspired by Pi (π). Pi is a mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, commonly approximated as 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter "π" since the mid-18th century, though it is also sometimes spelled out as "pi".


Hot Pi 2

PaulTim – 14 March 2017

90 X 90 cm

Hot Pi 2 is a second work recognizing Pi. Pi 2s composition has the two circle merging together in a more dominate composition.

Wondrous Summer

My mentor, Charles Csuri turned 94 today! Happy birthday Chuck.

I was inspired by Csuri's artwork, Wonderous Spring, 1992 shown below.

Wondrous Whirlwind

PaulTim, 14 July 2016

76.2 X 203.2 cm

Abstract Expressionism

Born July 14th, 1918, Jay Wright Forrester is an American electrical engineer and management expert. In 1944-51 he supervised the building of the Whirlwind computer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for which he invented the random-access magnetic core memory, the information-storage device employed in most digital computers. He also studied the application of computers to management problems, developing methods for computer simulation.

Jumping Genes

PaulTim – 16 June 2016

76.2 X 203.2 cm

Abstract Expressionism

Art dedicated to Barbara McClintock, regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of genetics. In the 1940s and 1950s McClintock's work on the cytogenetics of maize led her to theorize that genes are transposable - they can move around - on and between chromosomes. McClintock drew this inference by observing changing patterns of coloration in maize kernels over generations of controlled crosses. The idea that genes could move did not seem to fit with what was then known about genes, but improved molecular techniques of the late 1970s and early 1980s allowed other scientists to confirm her discovery. She was awarded the 1983 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, the first American woman to win an unshared Nobel Prize

Spinning Electron

PaulTim, 8 August 2016

104.14 X 139.7 cm

Abstract Expressionism

Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, born 8 Aug 1902, was an English theoretical physicist known for his work in quantum mechanics and for his theory of the spinning electron. In 1933 he shared the Nobel Prize for Physics with the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger.


PaulTim – 5 May 2016

127 X 76.2 cm

Abstract Expressionism

Dedicated to Vincent van Gogh. In May 1889, after episodes of self-mutilation and hospitalization, Vincent van Gogh chose to enter an asylum in Saint-Rémy, France. There, in the last year before his death, he created almost 130 paintings. Within the first week, he began Irises, working from nature in the asylum's garden. The cropped composition, divided into broad areas of vivid color with monumental irises overflowing its borders, was probably influenced by the decorative patterning of Japanese woodblock prints.


PaulTim, 2019 April 8

46 X 32 cm

Dedicated to William Henry Welch (April 8, 1850 – April 30, 1934) was an American physician, pathologist, bacteriologist, and medical school administrator. He was one of the "Big Four" founding professors at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was the first dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and was also the founder of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, the first school of public health in the country. The Johns Hopkins medical school library is also named after Welch. In his lifetime, he was called the "Dean of American Medicine" and received various awards and honors throughout his lifetime, and posthumously.

Ernest Orlando Lawrence (August 8, 1901 – August 27, 1958) was a pioneering American nuclear scientist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1939 for his invention of the cyclotron. He is known for his work on uranium-isotope separation for the Manhattan Project, as well as for founding the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Chemical element number 103 was named lawrencium in his honor after its discovery at Berkeley in 1961.

Abstract Expressionism

Dedicated to and was completed on Alessandro Volta's 270th birthday. Born (18 February 1745 – 5 March 1827) was an italian credited with the invention of the first electrical battery, the Voltaic pile, which he invented in 1799 and the results of which he reported in 1800 in a two part letter to the President of the Royal Society. With this invention Volta proved that electricity could be generated chemically and debased the prevalent theory that electricity was generated solely by living beings. Volta's invention sparked a great amount of scientific excitement and led others to conduct similar experiments which eventually led to the development of the field of electrochemistry.

Alessandro Volta also drew admiration from Napoleon for his invention.
