Tim Carrington’s paintings recognize evolutions, such as when afternoon melts into evening or when morning arrives in a dazzle of light, or perhaps when a person arrives, departs, or takes in some fresh realization.
Chinese railway builders look up from their labors, workers trudge home in the slightly menacing twilight of Pyongyang, a new day or a new season fills the horizon. Each painting represents an effort to distill a passing configuration, with each picture carrying a sense of farewell.
The red hill is truly red, but only briefly so: it will soon be more muted, less noticeable. Carrington’s paintings, drawn from direct observation or photographs taken during travels, aim to help a fleeting arrangement assert itself a little more strongly, or leave an echo as time pushes onward.
Tim Carrington, born in 1951 and raised in Richmond, Virginia, splits his time between Washington DC and Washington, Virginia. He has worked as a writer and editor at the Wall Street Journal, based in New York, Washington and London, and he also served as a Senior Communications Officer for the Africa Region at the World Bank. He has shown his paintings at exhibits in Keene Valley, New York, Millwood, Virginia, and in Washington DC. He has studied with a number of local artists, including Tom Mullany, Guy Fairlamb, Barbara Heile, and Maude Tabor-Thomas.
