Lost Ties: A Journey By Image By Tim Anthony

The book of art work contains descriptive works in three parts. The first section contains a run of “stills” from an imaginary screen play the artist conjured up. Over time, as the images developed, a sequence of chronological flow, time and story ensued. This all happened by accident but eventually he was able to incorporate all the images into a WWII screen play with two separate operating theaters, Indo-Europe and North Africa. Somehow he managed to weave a story line of five disparted girls and the dilemma of the father being forced to develop biological warfare for the Germans. This is exemplified by the intertwined bug motif.

The second section consists of text by the author and links illustrations to the folk tales. It basically was an exercise to prepare for a further book at a later date.

The third section remains simply a smorgasbord of backlogged work from the time period 1987-2000. These were included to show the scope and range of his ability.
