Tim Ridley

Tim Ridley is a contemporary fine artist, whose multi media practice centres on the relationship between animals and humans. Tim uses found objects, oil paint, paper, performance and graphite to question the uneven power relationship between animals and humans. The often small scale work has an ‘antique’ feeling reflecting the history of the found objects involved. Imagery that is used as a starting point is often sourced from mid 20th century publications. Anything he makes is undertaken with the utmost respect towards animals and the environment, he has been a vegan for 30 years. Tim is not looking for answers, so much as opening up a space in which future solutions to species extinction, and habitat loss can be found.
