John Timberlake (b.Lancashire, 1967) is a London based artist whose career spans more than three decades. In Timberlake’s paintings, photographs, montages and installations, landscape as a genre is subjected to a dialectical interplay of retreat and engagement, histories and timelessness, memory and the unconscious, rationality and hysteria. The works are typically sequential, presenting as fragmented or truncated sequences that create affective spaces of uncertainty, difficulty, fracture and contradiction. As such, Timberlake’s landscapes simultaneously present us with topographies of exile and belonging, recognition and alienation, retreats and re-engagements. John Timberlake originally studied Fine Art at Brighton Polytechnic (BA Hons, Fine Art Alternative Practice); The Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program, where he was Van Lier Fellow 2001-2002, and Goldsmiths College (practice / theory Ph.D).
