Education and Early Career
Tim studied Fine Art in Brighton before making the decision to move to London and assert himself as a photographer. The artist gained experience in various industries including film, advertising, publishing, and architecture before eventually establishing himself as a painter, a role which he now pursues full-time in Wimbledon, London.
Tim Goffe’s Style and Practice
Tim paints with a discerning, photographer's eye. His abstract landscape paintings such as Aggregates, Greenwich, oil on canvas, provide a snapshot of inner city locations and architecture normally overlooked and ignored. Urbanite pockets of quiet and desolate industrial settings are beautified, giving life to previously uninviting destinations. Expressive mark-making techniques and a refined balance of precision and exploration consistently characterise Tim’s work.
Prizes and Exhibitions
Tim has been selected for the last four Royal Academy Summer Shows, including this year's “Winter Exhibition". In 2018, he was hung in the main salon by Grayson Perry and in Barbara Rae’s room in 2019. His works have been displayed at competitive open shows including the Lynn Painters Stainers Prize, The Threadneedle Prize, the RBA Open and the Discerning Eye. In 2014, Tim won the Gordon Hulson Memorial Prize for: Draughtsmanship, Variety and Exploration, and has since been shortlisted for a variety of other prestigious and noteworthy awards
