A propos des auteurs

Tim Knowles

Tim Knowles lives and works in Bristol. Although his work does not tackle the issue of leisure, Tim Knowles indirectly reflects upon it via the idea of drifting and chance, notably the dynamics of walking and sailing. “In a series of staged, and variously recorded, events, people funnel down hillsides, vessels drift across bodies of water, ink runs down pleated paper, light trails through the darkness, tracks are traced through grass.” (Lizzie Lloyd, ‘Conversations with Tim Knowles’, The Dynamics of Drifting, ed. Tim Martin, Taunton: Hestercombe, 2017). His work is exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally. For a full list of his works and exhibitions, visit: www.timknowles.com.
