Tim Rawlinson’s fascination with the way light passes through glass informs his work. He exploits transparency, as its essential and primary quality, manipulating and distorting both colour and form in order to challenge his viewer’s perceptions.
The refractive qualities of glass, in Tim’s sculptures, create optical effects and shadows, that transform their environment creating an architecture of light and colour.
The use of light to effectively mix colours is now a main aspect of Tim’s work. “Light excites glass. It gives it an energy that transforms the material, projecting out onto its surroundings.”
Society moves at an alarmingly rapid pace demanding instant solutions. Tim’s works aim to touch a part of our intellectual and spiritual need to slow down and experience what is going on within. These beautiful pieces are objects of curiosity and contemplation.
