Tim Warren talks about his paintings in his latest exhibition ‘I have a place in mind’ at elysium gallery.
Landscape forms the stage onto which our life unfolds. It becomes a given that we all recognise and understand.
The artists’ landscapes are not specific places but are generic images that stand as a sign or symbol for the ideal or remembered places that transcend personal experience and exist for all of us.
The world of memory and emotion is inseparable from imagery and the other senses which combine to create our experience of being in the world and that enable us to agree with others as to what the world is. For this exhibition, Warren’s paintings try to bring into life these fundamental places and show them as they live in our conciseness creating atmosphere and an emotional response.
