OBSERVATIONS OF TIM CANTOR'S PAINTINGS part 12: The Origins of Nostalgia 'Nostalgia' is one of the largest scale paintings Tim Cantor has composed in his life so far, and perhaps one of the most profound. Painted as an amplified tale of two thoroughly opposite ways of being, 'Nostalgia' portrays the embodiment of both the past and present―giving tribute to the pains of youth that carve one's strength in age. A great merge of truth, beauty, and courage exists deeply within 'Nostalgia'—in its narrative, in its heart, and in its bravery of portrayal.
