Tim Southall

Tim Southall was born in Staffordshire in 1961 and grew up on the edge of the heavy industrial heartlands of the Black Country. He was based in London for twenty years, until in 2001 he moved to the beautiful countryside of the Costa de la Luz – the coast of light – in Cadiz Province, southern Spain.

Tim is a painter and printmaker who strives to make work which is delicate and shows a lightness of touch along with an eye for detail and nuance. At the same time he uses the language of drawing and mark-making in an attempt to describe emotional depth and atmosphere. He also delights in using visual devices or narratives to convey some of the great classical themes and hopefully create something new and fresh with a modern voice. The resulting works are rarely direct representations or specific places but distillations of various places and experiences and pose the two basic questions of metaphysics: What is ultimately there? and, What is it like?
