  • About the work

Technique: acrylic and spraypaint on canvas;

Year: 2020;

Tim Fawcett’s paintings point towards the legacy of Art Brut, establishing a midpoint between abstraction and representation by combining weathered surfaces, scrawled text, raw, gestural marks, and hints of childlike figuration. Rooted in realistic painting, his practice evolved to its current position following a transformative experience teaching adults with learning disabilities. The natural freedom his students embodied in their approach challenged Fawcett’s own relationship with order and chaos. A visual paradox emerges in Fawcett’s mature work, as something seemingly simple and haphazard gradually reveals itself to be layered and complex—a glimpse of the metaphysical within the mundane. His idiosyncratic yet harmonious compositions evoke both the failure of logical systems to solve modern problems, and the inherent optimism embedded within intuition and spontaneity. Fawcett is based in Isle of Wight, and his work has been exhibited extensively throughout the UK.


About the Artists

1962 Cambridge, United Kingdom

Tim Fawcett is a British painter whose works explore visual dichotomies - concrete versus abstract, discipline versus freedom, and order versus chaos. Having previously established himself as a figurative painter, a turning point for the artist came while he taught adults with learning disabilities. The profound joy his students showed in their uninhibited approach to painting was “life affirming and hugely inspirational”, providing Fawcett with a new purpose and drive, “to explore and develop a new approach and process, a leap of faith into trusting instinct, spontaneity and experience.” His current work combines weathered surfaces, scrawled text, raw, gestural marks, and hints of childlike figuration, positioning itself at a midpoint between abstraction and representation. Originally from Cambridge, Tim Fawcett studied Fine Art at Sunderland and Cambridge with PGCE training at Brighton. Since 2016, he has been living in Isle of Wight, fully committed to his artistic practice.
