Diving into the abstract with ‘Pinks, Greens, Violate with Cadmium Yellow’
The Frestonian Gallery welcomes Tim Braden back for his third exhibition; ‘Pinks, Greens, Violate with Cadmium Yellow’. The exhibition is an exploration of the purgatory between categories and states, utilising bright colours and vivid brushstrokes to represent reality in a new and exciting way.
Braden is celebrated for his exploration of both the acceptance and rejection of conventions surrounding design practices. Through his unique approach to his work, the pieces present a beautiful harmony and balance across several variations of colour, composition, and texture.
Members of the Die Blau Reiter movement, such as Paul Klee and Gabrielle Munter, and their celebration of gardens, have been a long-standing inspiration for Braden. Inspiration from the work of Patrick Heron are also evident in Braden’s work with both artists adapting a similar approach to dramatic contrast of colours.
Born in 1975 in Perth, Scotland, Braden is a graduate of Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford University, completing his M.A. in 1999. Throughout his career Braden’s work has appeared in a number of impressive exhibitions, including displays at the Ryan Lee Gallery in New York, Galerie Juliette Jongma in Amsterdam and the Timothy Taylor Gallery in London.
We can’t wait to see Braden back for his third exhibition at the gallery which is running until the 6th November.
