Things we´re used to seeing in a construction or camping setting are re-examined by Tim for their hidden painterly qualities; their gloss or matte surfaces, abstract adornments or translucency for example become highlihted in wall objects, which at first glace could pass for abstract modernist paintings. Tim lets the viewer rediscover the material throught the shape of the object. Every work is a small discovery, but should not be seen as a seperate incident, rather: Tim aims to direct the whole chain of material, idea, the shape of the object, the installation of objects and the presence of the viewer in the space.
