Tim Gwyther

Random visual encounters and chance combinations often form starting points for Tim’s work. Pathways and markers that delineate the landscape: places named in a different age now dislocated from their origins: stolen meanings and associations with ancient sites and artefacts. 

He doesn’t usually begin with an idea, but just sets out on a procedure, and keep a critical eye on where it leads. Drawing lies at the heart of his practice. Simple tools and unimpeded techniques provide him with the most direct means of visualising an idea. For him, drawing is the most marvellous, elaborate, and complex way of making up his mind.
