Tim Cavnar spent his childhood living throughout the Mid-West, eventually earning a BFA from The Ohio State University. He then lived in Washington DC, New York and Boston before moving to New Orleans in 2010. He currently lives in St. Claude.
His work explores the rapidly gentrifying neighborhoods of his city, as reflected by the ceaseless renovation of once-blighted properties. Nearly all the houses and buildings pictured in this series have been torn down, burned down or remodeled beyond recognition since these paintings were made. These pieces serve as a marker for this moment in the city’s history, and a space to consider its future.
