Tim Davies works in a range of media, utilising the most appropriate processes, gestures and materials for the realisation of his work. Recent pieces have investigated the spatial, temporal and social aspects of various environments, exploring ‘real-and-imagined’ spaces. His practice involves observing and responding to sites and representations of sites, exploring how they are perceived, understood and experienced. Often, these works are ephemeral in nature and complement his gallery-based work.
