Timothy Forster (Ilkley, West Yorks.) is a conceptual artist primarily concerned with how we might fragment and reconstruct the experience of landscape.
Forster studied Fine Art at Cardiff University. Prior to 2014 he exhibited throughout Wales, in addition to contributing to group shows in America, Istanbul and Italy. In 2013 he hosted his first solo exhibition at the South Square Gallery in Bradford before beginning an MA in History and Heritage Management at the University of Leeds.
In 2018, Forster had his second solo exhibition titled ‘Periods in Landscape’ at The Wishbone Gallery in Grassington, a series of watercolours which considered the immersive characteristics of fell and ultra-running and its relationship with the Yorkshire Dales and the neighbouring Lakeland landscape. This exhibition was then followed with the series being exhibited at the National Army Museum in Chelsea as part of 'Flux', an organisation devoted to promoting and exhibiting new and established contemporary artists.
Recently, he has has concluded a solo exhibition of 'Periods in Landscape' at the Manor House Museum in Ilkley. The success of this exhibition has resulted in the confirmation of a solo exhibition at Farfield Mill and Heritage Sight in Sedbergh in 2020.
