Timothy Spall




Part of events on ArtRabbit in: London

To many of us, especially in the UK, Timothy Spall needs no introduction. He is an actor well-known and famous enough to be a household name. His thorough preparation for his award-winning role as Mr Turner in the eponymous film, laid the groundwork for this foray into painting. As with his artist heroes and fellow Londoners, Blake and Turner, who saw God in the world they painted, Timothy Spall expresses an animating and sublime life-force, which imbues his subjects with symbolic power and poetic imagination. The paintings convey a sense of reaching out to that which is slipping past. Spall makes landfall, grasps the significant and anoints it in paint.
