One Year Later is a collection of new work made over a period of one year. It represents his “return journey after a long physical and emotional separation”.

Using his own body as a template along with different abstract marks and counters he uses time to record this journey.

Tim said: “For the first time, I celebrated myself in my work and using my own presence as an individual I am telling my story of this cathartic journey. I used the daily process of making work to acknowledge my own existence, celebrating and marking my presence in that time, with days, weeks, months or a year as a motif. My journey is about learning to go forward, and return, with a renewed sense of self – free of compliance, guilt and obligation.”

As previously reported here, Tim is currently working on plans to create a unique portrait of Stamford by drawing around up to 10,000 local residents on a huge canvas.

The thousands of charcoal outlines will overlap and come together to create a unique piece of art. It will be the latest in a series of collaborative Crowded Room’ pieces of art which Tim has created.

He is planning to create the artwork in a busy town centre location in March – and to put the finished creation on show at Stamford Arts Centre between between March 27 and April 19.
