Tim Woolcock | British
Tim Woolcock (born 1952 in Lancashire, England) is a Modern British painter working in the
tradition of the 1950s. His works have been exhibited nationally and internationally and are
in private and public collections worldwide and have sold at auction. In 2009 the Office of
Public Works in Dublin, Ireland acquired one of his artworks for the Department of Arts,
Heritage and the Gaeltacht. A notable sale of one of his Devon paintings was made from The
Royal College of Arts in 2005.
In 2019 Tim Woolcock created and then donated the painting “Blue and Turquoise
Amalgam” for the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital second floor atrium as he and
members of his family have been patients in the hospital, and he wanted to return
something in gratitude.
As a modern British painter Woolcock’s landscapes have often been described as mystical in
their composition. He has always shown an affinity with Zen and this is reflected in most of
his work. The strong pigments used in his oil colour have also made his work distinctive.
Though Tim’s paintings have an independent strength and clarity his painting shows
inspiration from the traditions of the 1950s and St Ives Schools, Paul Nash and Evelyn
