Tim Smith

Subject: Abstract
Tags: Collage, Layers, Marks, Evocative

Original mixed media painting in acrylic, oil and found leaves on canvas.

"The process of painting is a slow one, transparent thin layers partially covering and changing the areas is like a process of how an area of land may change over time, of how a border between countries can change. The work was completed in the garden by the studio over a period of months and the surface contains some remnants of ivy and fern leaves which will disintegrate at some point."

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.
