This limited edition giclee print on museum grade archival paper is a reproduction of a graphite on paper drawing by Tim Lane.
The inspiration for this piece came from a character in ‘The Brothers Karamazov’ by Dostoyevsky. Here one body has taken on the responsibilities of all of humanity, but whilst the people gain support, in return they have given away their autonomy. They are blissfully ignorant but ultimately powerless.
Tim’s anachronistic style takes especially strong influence from classic literature and mythologies. Although Tim’s background is in illustration he now concentrates on fine art painting and drawing, in which he enjoys greater creative freedom in terms of both style and subject matter. Illustration has however helped to give structure to his love for working directly from his imagination and gives his art its narrative quality. It has also encouraged a passion for drawing, which is at the core of all his work.
Tim graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2004 with a first class degree in Illustration. Notable group exhibitions include Grotesques and Anatomy with Antlers Gallery, ‘Out of Darkness’ Literary Festival at The Globe at Hay, Hay-on-Wye and ‘Mortal: Life, Death and Memento Mori’ Clifton, Bristol. Tim has had two solo shows at Knifesmith Gallery in Bristol ‘The Innocents?’ 2009 and ‘Revelations’ 2010.
