Tim Southall

Tim Southall is a painter and printmaker, working in oils on canvas and paper, etching and silkscreen. Most of his work is made at his studio in southern Spain. The London Print Studio and Birmingham Printmakers are his points of contact when in England. He is a graduate of Northumbria University and of the Royal College of Art. As a figurative artist, Tim makes work that is a response to the world, looking at life with an interest in landscape, both urban and rural. From initial sketches and thoughts, his ideas then spread out into whatever medium seems best to transform them into a piece of art. All of his work is informed by drawing and a strong use of composition. In his paintings he is concerned with colour, fluidity and the vibrancy of the brush as expressed through the landscape. In screenprint, with its process of colour separation, he takes the opportunity to make more graphic work. Finally to etching, where he uses the medium in a highly technical and traditional way, also exploring his interests in history, satire, portraiture and other traditional artistic narratives.
