Tim Hemington Artist Bio:

Biography Tim Hemington comes from Cheshire in the UK. He did his Art Foundation Course at Cheshire School of Art and went on to do his BFA degree at the Ruskin School of Drawing and of Fine Art at Oxford University. He was made a Scholar of University College Oxford and after graduation he lived and worked in Berlin, Germany. He gained an MA in Post War & Contemporary Art from the University of Manchester in the UK and was Henry Moore Fellow at the Byam Shaw School of Art in London. He has exhibited widely and has had solo exhibitions in the UK, Germany, Italy & Portugal. He has also curated exhibitions and assisted other artists (including Angela de la Cruz and Andy Goldsworthy) on some of their more ambitious projects. His work is in many international collections including Deutsche Bank Collection. Partly due to his relocation to Japan, between 2005 and 2013 Tim Hemington retreated from exhibiting publicly choosing to concentrate on developing his practice in private. He is now working towards exhibitions in Europe, the USA and Asia. His works consistently falls into two categories; flat paintings that often have an unexpected illusionistic dimension, and object paintings that literally approach sculpture. “More than thirty years after Michael Fried’s statement that “ what lies between the arts is theatre” Tim Hemington's paintings willfully inhabit that theatrical space (one usually associated with installation, video, performance etc.), where paintings approach objects, where the viewer enters the stage set and painting embraces the in between.” Brad Barnes
