How do art and artists relate to temporality? Is art, can art, be timeless? How does art relate to our own experience of temporality? Time features the work of Martin Puryear, Paul Pfeiffer, Vija Celmins, and Tim Hawkinson.

Martin Puryear is a sculptor whose minimalist works incorprate a range of materials.

American sculptor, photographer and visual artist, Paul Pfeiffer, is known for his meticilous attention to detail, taking up to four months to film two minutes of footage. Much of his time-consuming work incorporates the use of found footage, which he painstakingly pieces together to great effect.

Born in Latvia, but settling in the US from the age of ten, Vija Celmins is known for her photo-realistic paintings and drawings of natural environments and phenomena such as the ocean, spider webs, star fields and rocks.

Tim Hawkinson is an American sculptor whose use of his own body has been understood as a form of self portraiture. His fascination music, notation, and the passing of time are also big themes in his work and Hawkinson is renowned for creating complex sculptural systems through surprisingly simple means.
