Tim Prentice, kinetic sculptor, received a Masters Degree in architecture from Yale in 1960 and founded the award-winning architectural firm of Prentice & Chan in 1965.
Ten years later, he established a studio in Cornwall, Connecticut to design and fabricate kinetic sculpture. His large-scale sculptures have been commissioned by airports, hospitals, universities, libraries and other public venues throughout the United States. His corporate clients include American Express, Bank of America, Mobil, AT&T, Hewlett-Packard, Wells Fargo, Astra Zeneca, Samsung and Capital One. In the last few years he has completed installations in Switzerland, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Northern Ireland, Australia, Hong Kong and Cameroon.
He is known for his moving sculptures that are influenced by the slightest ripple in the environment. A light breeze or current of air from a heating and cooling system can set his lightweight, aluminum and stainless pieces swaying and undulating in silent rhythm.
Prentice has over 150 pieces in private collections as well as in excess of 140 public and corporate commissions. His work has been featured in many high profile group and individual shows and installations.
