Tim Snowdon Still Life

Suki & Hugh, Bungendore
12 October – 17 November 2019

In this exhibition, his first solo in 20 years, Tim will present a body of work which has been almost two years in the making. Offering a range of canvas sizes, a centre piece of the show is the large- scale work ‘Peaches’. The richness and accuracy of colour and the high level of detail are mouth-watering. Draped fabric appears to cascade off the canvas.

Tim is best known for his ‘unstill’ approach to still life themes. Elements such as leaves fluttering across the canvas and garlic skins floating on an imagined breeze give presence to Tim’s otherwise classical scenes. 

He attended National Art School in Canberra, then Sydney in the 70’s. He won the Albany Art Prize whilst travelling around Australia during that time and was a finalist in Still: National Still Life Award in 2017.

Returning to Australia, Snowdon lived in Sydney and was represented by Charles Hewitt throughout the 90’s. He moved to Bungendore in 2002 after the births of his two sons where his attention turned toward raising his family, whilst also painting and teaching painting.
