New Blood Art Statement

Tim Smith's handling of paint is reminiscent of Frank Auerbach - intense, gestural and thickly applied with bold impasto marks and colours. Nature, humanity, textures, patterns  and cultural motifs all jostle for space in his work.

A clamorous celebration of all things becomes a simple appreciation of form and colour; the way in which the painterly supersedes the subject evokes also the spirit of Jasper Johns. Smith draws from history, experience, fiction and fantasy to reflect his kaleidoscopic cultural vision.

Artist Statement

My work is driven by a fascination with the changing world, contemporary culture and the history of art. These are often mixed together in what I want to be a spontaneous blend of images rich in cultural references, I hope held together by passages of pure painting and lyrical colour in a "new representationalism"

I see artists as the real superheroes of the modern world, saving us from the mundane everyday. I want my paintings to be the complete opposite of all that is around us in the world today, to provide an antidote to the pressures of life and do what art should - show us the world in a new way. I tend not to paint the same things in long series of works, there are too many good ideas thrown our way each day to do this, but many of my themes will resurface in new combinations over a period of time.

Richard De Marco gave me the best advice ever - Tim, he said, always stay west of West and away from the centre.
