Tim McCormack has been drawing ever since he can remember. His lifelong interest in landscape painting has evolved into his current images of utopian and dystopian space; an exploration of the intersection of the aesthetics of the Romantic paintings with present day visual culture. His recent work combines play and illusion in search of an expression of the sublime, in ink drawings that are distilled from scientific photographs, found textures and manga. Other sources of inspiration include the human figure, Japanese cityscapes and his favourite pens.
A graduate of OCAD he has had several solo shows of watercolours, oils and pastels. His work is found in many private collections.
