Tim Fowler lives and works in Leicester England and has been a practicing and exhibiting artist for over 12 years. Tim has shown his work around the world in the US, Ibiza and Germany, with 8 solo exhibitions in London and Leicester. Tim’s main concern within his work is exploring the colour field. Although vivid Tim’s works are invariably balanced, using a signature colour palette of extremely bright and intense hues makes his work distinctly recognisable.
His explorations in tone and texture are mainly depicted through portraiture and architectural paintings. He uses a variety of medium within his work combining oil, acrylic, spray, enamel and graffiti inks. Tim subverts traditional and contemporary methods of applying these mediums using brushes, different aperture caps and marker paint mops to orchestrate purposeful marks, strokes, drips, scrapes and smears across the canvas whilst constructing his exciting and dynamic artworks.
Memento Mori – 100 skulls
In 2018 Tim Fowler put together a week long performance exhibition at the LCB Depot Gallery space. He started out with 100 blank canvases in a 25 x 4 grid. Over the next few days he worked day and night to paint 100 skull paintings. This was a live event so the public could come in whenever he was there and watch him paint and ask any questions. It was not possible for anyone to pre buy, reserve or buy more than 4 paintings each. On day 7 at 5pm then went on sale on a first come first serve basis. The entire collection sold out in less than 2 hours.
As well as his on going interest in the concept of memento mori, which is Latin for remember the dead, Tim took this as a challenge to see if he could complete this task in such a short period of time with the added pressure of people observing him.
