Tims explorations in tone and texture are mainly depicted through portraiture and architectural paintings. He uses a variety of medium within his work combining oil, acrylic, spray, enamel and graffiti inks. Tim subverts traditional and contemporary methods of applying these mediums using brushes, different aperture caps and marker paint mops to orchestrate purposeful marks, strokes, drips, scrapes and smears across the canvas whilst constructing his exciting and dynamic artworks. Although working with figurative and architectural themes, the subject matter within his work becomes almost inconsequential. Using found and made images as a starting point. Tim builds layers of pigment, adding abstract fragments as well as bold marks, broken lines and liberal strokes to create contours and features, be they of building facades, silver screen legends or his more intimate family scenes. Doing this captures something more interesting than literal representation. This visceral connection to colour is palpably intuitive to Tim, using it as an expression of internal contemplations.
This piece from the collection "VIVID ICONS" is a body of work encapsulating Tim's distinctive use of bold and bright colours to honour some of London's most prominent landmarks and celebrated figures. In a time of doubt and ambiguity our capital city is still robust with life, exploding with creativity, innovation and artistic ingenuity. This collection of work is an energising tribute to London's historical fabric and triumphs in art, culture and diversity.
