6 - 9pm, Thursday 23rd Sep
Tim Baden - Pinks, Greens, Violet with Cadmium Yellow
Tim Braden’s third solo exhibition with Frestonian Gallery provides a fascinating insight into the many layered concerns and inspirations of his practice as a painter. The paintings take as their subject matter the abstract nature of both garden and textile design.
Paul Klee, Gabrielle Munter and others of Die Blau Reiter movement and their passion for gardens have been an enduring inspiration for Braden. His ‘textile’ paintings are informed by an appreciation of the work of early 20th Century artists like Anni Albers, and others who were so excited by the possibilities of co-opting this ancient medium in new ways. The work, in particular, of Patrick Heron informs an approach to the adjoining or separating of planes of colour, and their power of ‘activating’ one another.
