Tim Price 'Nice Paintings, Nice Price'

Tim Price's Nice Paintings, Nice Price opens in the Utopian Slumps Project Room on Saturday 9 February 2013.

Price’s paintings of domestic interiors, gardens and everyday, imagined and ambiguous scenes are heavily layered through the use of over-painting in a collage-like style that works to render their beginning and end points unclear. Price employs various painting techniques, traversing figuration and abstraction, naïveté and realism through broad-sweeping brush marks and spattered, near-pointillist effects.

Price completed a Bachelor of Arts with Honours from the Australian National University in 2007. Solo exhibitions include Tim Price, Cunningham St, Northcote, 2010; Late Spring Show, TCB Art Inc, Melbourne, 2009; B.C + A.D = T.P + T.C, with Trevelyan Clay, Gallery 9, Sydney, 2008; and Harmony and Soul, M16, Canberra, 2008. Recent group exhibitions include Impossible Objects I, curated by Helen Hughes and Melissa Loughnan, Utopian Slumps, Melbourne, 2011; Bendigo Art Gallery Painting Prize, Bendigo Art Gallery, Bendigo, 2011; Territorial Pissings, Utopian Slumps, Melbourne, 2010; Rimbaud / Rambo, Neon Parc, Melbourne, 2008 and The Painting Depot, M16, Canberra, 2008.

Nice Paintings, Nice Price will continue to 2 March 2013.
