Mark Barry Timmins Artist's Statement 2015
In my paintings, I am trying to get back to a specific time and place in my childhood. A place of spiritual renewal, inspiration and wonder. This place is elusive and mysterious
but I am trying to describe it in my work. Sometimes it feels Utopian, sometimes nightmarish, but always strangely familiar.
These images then become reflections of my own personal mythology and perhaps a better way to understand myself.
my interior world. When images come it feels like I am sending postcards back from a distant past with its own set of customs, values and beliefs. I feel like an observer of a place that I don't quite understand yet with a compulsion to note everything down
in visual form.
