How many exhibition works:
The artist Tim Ralston is continually experimenting with the inter-disciplinary nature of contemporary art. His ephemeral, architecturally scaled, site-responsive paintings intervene and slice through the spaces they temporarily inhabit.
Ralston’s immersive paintings deconstruct the medium to its constituent parts, focusing on the support and surface. Experienced in the construction of painting panels he lets the rules inherent in this aspect of the practice inform the aesthetics. Viewed in the round the paintings become three-dimensional objects, challenging our perception of painting and the classic landscape genre.
Born and raised in South London, Tim has been working in the arts for nearly 15 years, having finished 7 years at art school. A classically trained painter he is most interested in the fabrication and technical aspects of art-making. This has led him to work for London institutions and galleries such as the BFI, ICA, Tate and Hauser and Worth fabricating and installing exhibitions. He has worked as an artist and fabricator to many artists including Damien Hirst, Raqib Shaw and Julian Opie, amongst others. He now lives and works in Lisbon where alongside his painting practice he runs a residency project and gallery, PADA - www.padastudios.com
