Karin Wally, filmmaker and former Austrian Film Commissioner became interested in the work of Tim Holmes while he was living for a time in Vienna. After a few months of planning filming began in Vienna at the Pygmalion Theater during the run of a live performance, "Brecht, Brancusi and Holmes", and continued in the stunning gardens of Schönbrunn Palace.

Then the crew traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia, where they interviewed curators at the Hermitage Museum about Tim's exhibition there in 1993-94. Following that they flew to Montana to shoot interviews and art in in Helena, Bozeman and Billings before returning to Vienna to do post-production.

The one-hour film, edited for European TV from a two-hour feature documentary version, features many of Tim's art series such as the Visitation by the Muse, Dangerous Books, the Metaphysical MapsDancing World paintings and the Body Psalms project.   

The film is yet to be released but we will keep you posted.

Hermitage curator

Hermitage curator Sergie Androsov tells us, “There are many artists who are famous but in my opinion they are not the best. It's better to find other artists, masters like Tim Holmes, who are perhaps not so well known but whose work is interesting and groundbreaking.“
