About Tim Wetherell

I've had a quite diverse artistic practice over the years beginning with photography in the 80's and 90's then sculpture in the 2000's. I’ve exhibited quite widely in shows like Sculpture by the Sea and the McClelland Survey. I’ve even had a piece exhibited in the National Gallery of Australia. However in more recent years my primary artistic focus has been on painting.
I like to create each painting in a style that I feel lends itself to the subject matter, rather than imposing a single signature style on every one of my works. As an exercise, I sometimes enjoy emulating the style of famous artists of the past. I find this helps broaden my own artistic vocabulary and better enables me to impart whatever flavour I feel best suits a particular subject. Sometimes this results in my works having a historical feel to them and I often like to counterpoint this by including modern elements such as piercings or electrical outlets.
There's no overarching theme to the subject matter I choose other than the pursuit of what I find intriguing and aesthetically pleasing. I like paintings to have an element of romance and beauty to them and aim to create works that are evocative of other times and places.
