John Timberlake’s practice and research as a fine artist engages principally with the practise of photography, painting and drawing, underpinned by the legacies and dialogics of conceptualism. As a Fine Artist, Timberlake has focused his practise over the past 20 years to work in and around issues of picturing, photography and realism as a set of problematics, grounding the grand generalities of themes and genres which interest me in the sometimes comedic particularities of the materials or forms he chooses to work with. Timberlake’s work is in a number of public and private collections in Europe and the US, including the Imperial War Museum, London and the West Collection, Oaks, Pennsylvania. Recent exhibitions include: Catalyst: Contemporary Art & War (Imperial War Museum North, Manchester, 2013-14); Homage to January (Division of Labour / Worcester Museum & Art Gallery, 2014) Paysages conçus pour les drones (Galerie des petits carreaux, Paris, 2014) We Are History (Beaconsfield, London, 2014) and Turning Points at the Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest.
