-----------------------------------------| About the Artist:
Tim Carrington's paintings feature people and landscapes, captured at home, in Virginia, and in far-flung locations, such as Sri Lanka and Senegal. He works from sketches, his own photographs, and at times, images that appear in newspapers. He works in oil paints, on either canvas or wood panel.
His landscapes often capture the passage from afternoon to evening, or nighttime to morning, while his figures similarly suggest a transition— perhaps in the form of a fresh realization. An elderly man approaches a window to greet a new day, or workers trudge home in the slightly menacing twilight of Pyongyang. One configuration is passing, another moving in.
Tim Carrington, born in 1951 and raised in Richmond, Virginia, is a 13-year student at St. Christopher's, graduating in the class of 1969. He splits his time between Washington, D.C. 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 was the featured artist at a show at the Waverly Street Gallery in Bethesda Maryland. He has studied with a number of Washington and Virginia artists, including Tom Mullany, Guy Fairlamb, Barbara Heile, and Maude Tabor-Thomas.
