Tim Saternow’s paintings explore the dignified and genial old houses of Provincetown, the empty homesteads of Joshua Tree, California, the buildings and gritty industrial streets of New York City.  I paint a moment, with light and shadow, and I make the city quiet.   

Trained as a TV Art Director an theatre lighting and set designer, Emmy nominated Tim Saternow is extremely sensitive to the emotive power of light, especially the distinct bold light during fall and winter, creating deep shadows, while playing across the faces of the old houses, warehouses, and train trestles.

I find tremendous energy and timelessness in the rust, stains and patina of these old locations, and the stories it tells.
