I really enjoy the sense of cohesion in Tim’s art portfolio. Though each work is distinct, and the artist has produced several series, each focusing on a clear visual theme, Tim maintains a unique and identifiable style throughout his body of work. There’s something peaceful, almost meditative about many of these works -- though the artist often utilizes dark colours and heavy textures, the use of abstract forms floating on neutral backgrounds invites contemplation.

In our previous feature of Tim’s work, we explored the artist’s use of earthy colours and abstract shapes in his newest series of works. The emphasis in this series is on organic forms and colours. I look forward to seeing how Tim’s practice has evolved further in recent years!
