Tim Tozer

Tim Tozer Portrait artist of the year series

Tim’s paintings evoke sensations of the English coast he grew up beside, even though they are not bound to one specific locale or personal experience. Through the process of painting, Tim searches for a configuration of spaces, light and placement that resonate with the specific emotional pitch of a vague memory of home. Although he starts with people and places he knows from his own life, it is only when the work departs from these that the paintings can connect directly to the formal impulses that drive them.
