Tim Stoner talks through his works in 'Accordion Fields'

23 February 2024

Distilled from initial experimental drawings, and often worked on for a number of years, Tim Stoner approaches his paintings as palimpsests, his scenes described as much by the removal and erasure of painting, as by the addition of the medium. Derived from landscape imagery, the finished works contain compressed layers of painting that resist a singular or immediate reading, with passages of surface excavated at times to reveal the ghosts of earlier forms and gestures.

Stoner graduated from the Royal College of Art, London in 1994, and after that, studied at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam (1997-1998). Recent exhibitions include ‘The Kingfisher’s Wing’ (curated by Tom Morton), Grimm Gallery, New York (2022); ‘Slow Painting’, Hayward Gallery Touring, UK (2022) and ‘Telescope’ (curated by Nigel Cooke), Hastings Contemporary, Hastings, UK (2018).
