Tim Woolcock is a fundamental Modern British artist painting in the tradition of the 1950's. His two themes are abstractions & landscape abstraction based on his walks in Ireland and the West Country. He uses Michael Harding pigments which are hand-made. He is a colourist & is in private collections both in the UK and abroad. Tim Woolcock grew up in Lancashire and attended The Roehampton Institute at the University of London, but his family’s roots are in Cornwall. His landscape abstractions and near-abstractions are made up of rich blocks of colour, which are often scratched or scored. They are inspired by the work of St Ives-based Modern British artists such as Patrick Heron, William Scott and Ben Nicholson, although they are suffused with Woolcock’s own sense of colour. It is his rare clarity of vision that gives these pictures their strength and simplicity.
