Timothy Gatenby (b. 1987) is a British artist whose work focuses on the subjects of nostalgia, real life experiences and memory. Working predominantly in oil paint there is a certain reverence to classical painting acknowledged in Gatenby’s work but evidently subverted with a contemporary eye. Through his limited palette and the ghostly distortion of imagery a sense of foreboding lurks behind the softly executed painting surface in Gatenby’s world.
Since training under Charles Cecil in Florence, Italy, Gatenby has exhibited regularly around the UK. His work has been displayed at the National Portrait Gallery, Royal Academy of Art, Royal Society of British Artists, New English Art Club, Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and Columbia Threadneedle Prize.
