Part of The Artist's Life series

Tim Whiten is chair of the Visual Arts department at York University, where he received the Dean's Teaching Award from the Faculty of Fine Arts in 1999-2000. He is represented in numerous collections, including the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Describing himself as being motivated by "man's place in the scheme of things," Whiten once thought he would become a clinical psychologist. He discovered, however, that he liked "doing" better than "thinking"-hence his migration to sculpture, painting, and eventual projects like the sand-blasting of skeletal forms into rock face at the Tree Museum. He discusses his preference for using natural materials like lemon juice and coffee in painting, as well as the philosophical and meditative approach he takes to his work.
