Ep.201 Tim Allen - Ministry of Arts Podcast

In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Tim Allen (@timallenshots)

"My work over the last six to seven years has attempted to draw together a number of disparate, sometimes contradictory, formal elements and subjects or themes that have all featured in my work over the last forty five years at different times. I hope that the paintings are more than the sum of their parts and that they can generate a broad response in whoever’s looking at them, emotionally and intellectually. I don’t want to limit this response by trying to define their ‘content’ too rigidly".

Born 1950 Manchester, bought up in Durham City. Education: University of Newcastle upon Tyne (68-72) and Goldsmiths (78-80).

Since 1968, has exhibited widely in the UK and Europe. Work in public and private collections, most recently in the Royal Academy Shows (2010/2011).
