Posted on March 25, 2015

Taking place at the Mall Galleries until March 28th is an exhibition of work by Tim Benson VPROI and Lachlan Goudie ROI. The show features a range of new paintings by both artists including portraiture, nudes and still life. Both Lachlan and Tim’s work is bold, colourful and painterly. Below are some of the images of the exhibition. Lachlan is a painter, writer and broadcaster currently appearing as one of the two artist judges in the new BBC1 series “The Big Painting Challenge”, a nationwide search for Britain’s best amateur artist. The series sees Lachlan setting tough challenges for ten amateur artists involving a range of different subjects and artistic mediums, alongside demonstrating how to master tasks as diverse as still life and portraiture. The public can judge what they think of the richly coloured and complex paintings that he loves to produce in his own studio, from still lives to portraits and nudes. Lachlan says, “I create pictures for the pure love of paint. I want my images to act like a canvas window; for people to be able to look into them and be transported by what they see.” Tim Benson VPROI studied painting at the Glasgow School of Art (Lachlan’s hometown), Tim has an instinct for the powerful, challenging figurative art that has often been the hallmark of the graduates of the GSA, including Jenny Saville and Alison Watt. Like Goudie, his approach to the canvas reveals a passion for the tradition of painting. But in his large scale nudes and portrait, Tim also explores the emotive and visceral potency of oil paint, his painting are characterised by their gestural brushwork and dynamism. Tim says, “I strive to make an image that offers more than simple representation – something with an emotive quality that captures the viewer’s imagination.” This dynamic and exciting show is open until 28th March 10 – 5pm and takes place at the Mall Galleries, London. Admission is free and work is available to view and buy online. To learn more about Tim or Lachlan’s work, please visit their websites. www.timbenson.co.uk www.lachlangoudie.com
