Anima Mundi - Tim Lane's 5 metre concertina book drawing

£17,733

149

This Kickstarter is to fund the publishing of Tim Lane's bookwork - Anima Mundi. 

Anima Mundi is a 5 metre long, graphite on paper drawing, which folds in to an A5 book and slipcase. The pages can be recombined with each other by folding the pages back and forth in different combinations, revealing new narratives and as such resists being pinned down to one linear reading or explanation. Tim Lane has been working on the drawing for two years and as a result his drawings are rich with imagery and emotion. Anima Mundi asks more questions than it answers – it’s a starting point for imaginative thought and exploration of some of the most fundamental and timeless ideas and questions. 

This Kickstarter is to fund the publishing of this amazing piece of art into a limited edition artist bookwork. Anima Mundi will be produced in collaboration with a high-end book binder, who are specialists in artist book publication. Only 200 copies of this bookwork will ever be produced, and each edition made will be printed, folded, trimmed and bound each end with a hardback cover. Every bookwork will be signed and numbered by Tim Lane on the inside cover. This will be presented in a bespoke slipcase and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. 

We are offering the limited edition Anima Mundi bookwork as one of the many rewards within the campaign. This is the best opportunity to purchase a bookwork as it comes at the lowest price and with additional rewards. To see the rest of the rewards we have on offer, from postcards to posters to limited edition prints, check out the side bar and details below.

ANIMA MUNDI 

'Anima Mundi' explores Myth in its wider sense, anachronistically bringing together icons and motifs from different world mythologies to create an enigmatic open-ended narrative. 

The work at times draws on Hindu Creation Myth with its profusion of theories about the origin of the Cosmos. According to the myth, Gods dwell in the primeval waters creating all in the physical world through the power of thought alone. It is this sense of great wonderment and mystery which is celebrated through these deliberately cryptic and poetic ideas. 

Dripping in sensuality and symbolism, Tim Lane’s beautiful draftsmanship invites us into a world where nothing is set in stone and everything has a duality of meaning. As severed heads and skeletal frames are juxtaposed with fertile plants and flowers, questions emerge about: chaos, life, death and decay. Anima Mundi explores not only the artist’s subconscious through these dream-like scenes but also gives access to this wider collective consciousness. 

This shifting sense of closure is also reflected in the physical way in which ‘Anima Mundi' cleverly flips and changes both narrative and form as the pages from the concertina are (re)combined with each other; evading any finite ending and layering on mystery. The tactile experience of this work is a pleasure as the viewer is given ownership of how their personal narrative unfolds. 

The title ‘Anima Mundi’ comes from the Latin for ‘Soul of the World’ and is according to several thought systems, an intrinsic connection between all living things on the planet; an energy which relates to our world in much the same way as the soul is connected to the human body. This idea originated with the Greek Philosopher Plato but also relates to ideas found in Animism which predates this and which held that spirits exist in everything in nature such as other animals, plants, rocks, rivers, thunder, even shadows. 

Anima Mundi will launch with a solo exhibition of Tim’s work at Antlers Gallery in Bristol UK. The bookwork will be presented alongside new original wall works. Anima Mundi (exhibition) will launch 4th July 2014 and run until 27th July. This will be the first time to see the book in real life and to see Tim’s latest work – currently in production for the show. To find out more about the bookwork and exhibition – please see http://www.antlersgallery.com/project/anima-mundi

TIM LANE

Tim is a contemporary fine artist living and working in Bristol, UK. 

Originally from Cheltenham, Tim graduated from Falmouth College of Art in 2004 with a first class BA (Hons) Illustration. Since then he has been concentrating on fine art painting and drawing, which was for him a natural progression from his degree, but which provides a far greater creative freedom enjoyed in terms of style and subject matter. Tim’s degree helped to give structure to his love for working directly from his imagination and also encouraged a passion for drawing, which is at the core of all his work. 

Tim’s anachronistic style takes strong influence from Classic Literature and World Mythologies and it is this that gives his art its rich narrative quality. The consideration of Myth especially, for Tim, provides a structure of multi-layered, open narrative that inspires highly symbolic imagery that not only prompts the viewer to find out more for themselves, but seeks to explain the world in a visceral, imaginative, dark way, often with a animalistic element. 

Tim is represented by Bristol based Antlers Gallery – though has exhibited in other galleries around the UK and is starting to exhibit internationally.
