Tim Williams’ most recent series of paintings depict a familiar subject from his childhood, spending years on a stud farm in Surrey. Tim uses flat colour backgrounds to emphasise the powerful body form of the horse. He brings life to the image by creating a washed effect around the head, suggesting the breathing motion of the animal. Areas of intense study are balanced with a freer use of the paint to give the painting a freshness.
Tim’s stag series are inspired by the raw elegance and dramatic form of red deer. Some works are monotonal, and capture the mood or a moment, while others incorporate colour and have a more romantic feel of stags in a landscape.
The weight of line and tone is important to the artist. Tim’s figurative work explores the use of line through charcoal to capture the model in a given moment. The drawings are free-flowing, producing a vibrant and lyrical composition.
Tim trained at the Royal College of Art, London. He has been awarded the renowned John Moores contemporary painting prize. Commissions include a painting for St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester.
