Tim Renshaw

The larger in/and the smaller is an exhibition of recent paintings by Tim Renshaw.

The paintings in the exhibition are developed through the layering up of thin planes of paint. The planes have the shape of a page and are loosely organised according to the format of an open notebook, that is, one accumulation of planes/pages symmetrically adjacent to another. Like a notebook each page carries something: flat coloured shapes mostly showing only an occasional glimpse of their form at the edges of the painting.

These shapes are sourced from what may be called spaces, but in the vaguest sense of this word: screen spaces, imaginary spherical spaces, vase spaces, shadow spaces, column and wall spaces, plant spaces and others. Any individual painting contains many planes with the shapes of many different spaces- most in a state of erasure. A preceding page prompts its erasure like a turning away or turning a page. When the shape of the painted space feels satisfying and the ground it rests upon takes on weight and density the pages stop turning. - Tim Renshaw, January 2023
