Tim Fawcett - Painter 

Purposely unlearning the skills and creative process, Fawcett approaches his work with a child's free spirit, He embraces error and irregularity as key elements of his oeuvre. He continuously strives to create distance between his adult self and the final result, realising complex concepts and expressing a powerful metaphor and symbolism, namely the misuse of power with impunity.

 

The speed at which he works often captures the energy, fed by his emotional response to current affairs, and in turn often transposes into a powerful kinetic energy in his painting. 

 

The focus of the painting process in the chairs series may take seconds to compose relying on instint and knowledge of painting, then may be reconsidered and over-painted entirely and completed within minutes, achieving a one-hit composition whenever possible.

 

Historically the humble chair can be symbol of authority, broken authority or the result of destructive authority on citizens.

 

Inspiration:

“I’m a huge fan of Cy Twombly because of his amalgamation of raw gesture and conceptualism, and Edvard Munch for his depth of emotional intelligence and his ability to harness this in a painting. Music of course plays an essential part in his process too, both lyrically and sonically.

Tim Fawcett is based in Isle of Wight, UK, his work has been exhibited extensively throughout the UK and shown in Italy, France and USA.
