Tim Kingsmill-Brown was born in London in 1954. He trained at
Watford and Exeter Art Colleges,but soon found himself investigating
the techniques of the Old Masters rather than following the path of
abstract expressionism and conceptual art practised by many of his
contemporaries. In recent work he has actually been revisiting this
abstraction, but all along he correctly surmised that abstraction was
very easy to execute badly, and extremely difficult to perfect!

Kingsmill-Brown’s passion, and the almost lyrical execution of his
oeuvre, can clearly be seen in his fantastic landscapes, where he
aims to capture something of the genius loci (spirit of place) in paint,
rather than the purely topographical. His influences span widely, but
clearly start with the master of Romanticism, JMW Turner. Kingsmill-
Brown’s focus on the lineage of the early 1800's Romantic school and
the sublime; that raw, overwhelming power of nature, is where his
work shimmers with life and depth. But what, he contemplates, if the
sublime was in a less intimidating mood? He refers back to his art
school tutor, Peter Schmidt, who stated “in a room full of shouting
people, the one who whispers becomes interesting”. With Kingsmill-
Brown’s work, that truth is self-evident.
