DESCRIPTION

FOLD Gallery | London and Tom Rowland Fine Art are proud to announce the extension of the highly acclaimed solo exhibition, In and Amongst, by Tim Davies

Tim Davies uses a diverse range of materials and incorporates a variety of different media, yet through this diversity, he manages to maintain an underlying sense of unity through his work. The matter used in making art is considered for its relatively manipulative quality and has a simultaneous semantic potential.

 Many of Davies’ works have aleatory elements to them and are essentially spontaneous or performative in content - the action, the task and the performance of making are integral to the work. Many of his works are site-responsive in origin, yet have resonances beyond their original source. Themes of displacement and cultural isolation are often connected to the location where the works are made. Then an appropriate method and material is chosen. It is Davies’ own personal experience and where that places him within a new context that influences the development of an idea and the process of making a work.

 Themes include built structures - how they are perceived, experienced and negotiated. Davies questions cultural and ceremonial conventions and uses the human body to explore the spatial, temporal and social aspects of architecture. According to Soja, spaces that are “real-and-imaged”.

 Tim Davies will be showing a selection of video and two-dimensional work, some of it from his 2011 Venice Biennale Exhibition, where he represented Wales. In addition to these pieces some earlier work situates the rest by illustrating the artist’s interest in process making within a minimalist aesthetic. Also included is new work recently made in China.

 Tim Davies lives and works in Swansea. His work is included the following collections – Arts Council Collection, Southbank Centre; National Museum, Cardiff; Harris Museum, Preston; Glynn Vivian Gallery, Swansea and the British Council.
