To mark the opening of the second new gallery at Tacit Contemporary Art, we revisit [LINEAR] - Tim's last solo exhibition at the gallery earlier this year.

Juxtaposing this work with the earlier Temporality in G6 highlights the artist's fascination with the subtle shifts and nuances of colour and tonality. Ever the colourist, through hand burnished and hand coloured linocuts in this exhibition, Tim continues to discover and explore a broader palette than earlier exhibitions such as Temporality.

Vivid pinks, reds and blues are juxtaposed with the grey-reds, grey-blues, grey-pinks more commonly associated with Tim's art practice. And through combining hand burnishing with hand colouring, Tim finesses the relationship of colour and tonality to each other.
