His work, influenced by his upbringing in County Wicklow and also by his amazing musical career as a member of the acclaimed Irish experimental, avant-garde, psychedelic, folk band, Dr Strangely Strange, has been showcased internationally, including in the Paris Biennale and Festival Internationale de La Peinture Cagnes-sur-Mer. Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the vibrant world of Tim Goulding’s artistry.

“I constructed the paintings as I might arrange a musical work, paying attention to counterpoint, harmony and the spaces between that imply rhythm. I am trying to emphasise a feeling of uplift, joy, and harmony. ‘Singing with colour’ is a good analogy”. –Tim Goulding
