Moved by the disquiet of the forgotten space, the abandoned building or a night time petrol station, Tim Goffe’s painterly style is a balance of precision and expressive mark-making, and has developed from his desire to translate, fleeting moments of observed malaise, into oil paintings. He looks for beauty in the ordinary, and meaning in the banal.
Light is always the starting point but themes develop. This painting is part of a series of empty shops.
Tim is a London based artist currently painting full time. Tim studied fine art at Brighton and photography at PCL before establishing himself as a photographer in London. Latterly, exhibiting fine art photography, Tim has more recently gained a reputation as an accomplished painter. With the belief that observational representational painting has a place in contemporary art he has won prestigious painting prizes and been selected for inclusion in high-profile gallery exhibitions, most recently the Threadneedle Prize exhibition at Mall Galleries.
