Tim Renshaw

Picture by Tim Renshaw

An urbanised geometry gives Tim Renshaw's painting a sign-like presence. The pictures stage a movement between appearance and deciphering. This encourages a deliberate play between an experience of visual immediacy and a process of reading forms.

The works picture a seemingly depthless space across which a painstaking accumulation of detail spreads. They are simultaneously flat and screen-like. On the one hand, colour, line and surface exist as sheer perceptual facts; on the other, they construct a space which could be read as a stage for projections.
