Artist's StatementTim’s early work examined moiré patterns and illusions of movement. He changed to printmaking to explore patterns with traditional meanings, for example Gothic manuscripts and oriental carpets. While teaching in Glasgow School of Art he participated in the movement to paint murals on gable ends, supported by the Scottish Arts Council. This led to his interest in the relationship between art and architecture, which he studied by retraining in architectural glass. His recent work uses mirrors in constructions with multiple reflections, which combine optical illusions, reflections and coloured glass.

For summer 2023 Tim is showing a retrospective selection from more than half a century’s production including working drawings, cartoons for glass and finished works.He is exhibiting with his wife, Paula who is showing woven tapestries, constructed textiles and wall hangings.
