Tim Ayres

Tim Ayres is a British born (1965) artist living and working in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Although his oeuvre spans portraits and abstract paintings (what he calls the "acoustic paintings") he is mostly known for the use of text in his work.
He describes the use of text as a suggestion of what one can possibly see on the painting; the image is 'said' and it is to the viewer to 'hear' it.
Ayres' works are represented in numerous private and public collections, including Mondstudio Collection, The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, The Sharjah Museum of Modern Art and The New York Public Library.
'Magnificent' is currently Ayres' favourite word.
