Artist Statement


Tim Law artist






Art is a lifelong obsession. I can never know enough, do enough.

I am reminded of a story about a Japanese Master revered for his brilliant work. One day his student came upon the Master (who was in his 80s ) weeping - the astonished student asked the Master "Why do you weep?". The Master replied, "Because I don't have time enough and still I have so much to learn". 

 The Japanese artistic philosophy of "wabi-sabi" is a deeply felt belief about things which are "...imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete, it is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional..." (Leonard Koren - Wabi-Sabi").  I strive for this authenticity. 

Having spent 40 years in pursuit of art. I can never know enough. The untamed, imperfect and natural are my subject. Nature shows us organic shapes that create authentic beauty. Nature is also fragile and at risk of human ignorance. 

The power of the imperfect, raw and organic is my subject.

I am not represented by a commercial gallery. Your support is therefore much appreciated. Enjoy your tour.
