History

Firstly, please note I have no connection with other websites also by artists called Tim Matthews. I live in Suffolk, England.

*

I have long been interested in geometric abstract art and, having retired in 2017, I decided to give painting the commitment it needs. The exploration of geometric patterns and structures built from simple geometric forms are my main interest. There are a huge variety of compositional possibilities, each balanced by its own palette of colour combinations. Usually they suit a grid-based format on a square canvas.

Major influences are Mondrian, the Delaunays, Vasarely, De Stael and the Post Painterly Abstract artists.

All works are for sale unless otherwise stated. Please contact me for more detail. The canvases are painted around the sides so can be hung without frames if desired. They are listed with the most recent at the top. The colour reproduction will inevitably not quite be correct in the images here and their effect is I think limited by being shown at a fraction of full size.
