Staff Profile:

Tim Renshaw
Position / Job Title:
Lecturer in Art
  • BA Art, PhD Art. Module convenor for BA Art Studio 2

Areas of Interest:

Tim's research interests are in the relationship painting has with the spaces of modern architecture. He also has research interests in building design that anticipate modern spatial design. He is also interested in the idea and form of the notebook as a method of looking and thinking and in particular the idea that a note can be a speculative means to re-plan , un-plan and open up unintended potentials in an existing architectural form. Developing methods of un-planning through processes of painting and then thinking about what this may means for the relationship an embodied subject has with a space is an ongoing concern. Tim is also part of the curatorial group Outside Architecture and is interested in the design of a group exhibition as a further means to un-plan an individual work.

Postgraduate Supervision: Tim welcomes research proposals on; painting and architecture, contemporary formalism, embodied experience of architectural space, un-planning and indeterminacy as a practice.


Research groups / Centres:



Postgraduate Supervision:

I welcome enquiries from prospective postgraduate students with interest in the areas of post seventies abstract painting produced in the wake of conceptual art and artworks concerned with developing a phenomenology of architecture space.
