This work is part of my series of gold mining themed abstract paintings. eGoli (the place of gold) is the name given to Johannesburg by the migrant workers who came from all over South Africa (as well as other sub-Saharan countries to make money to support their extended families back home. The landscape around Johannesburg is still dominated by the ochre mine dumps despite most of the mines in the area closing some years ago.

Tim Malone studied Fine Art in South Africa and subsequently worked as an award-winning advertising art and creative director for almost 40 years. Now that experience defines his artistic process. His approach to painting reflects the process in which layouts for print advertising are developed; any addition, deletion or amendment made to any part of the work impacts every other part. This means that solving one design problem often creates others, until a balanced result is finally achieved.

While Tim’s work is sometimes non-objective, it is always influenced by the social complexities, colours, shapes and textures of the places he’s lived and worked – South Africa, Saudi Arabia, England and Portugal.

Tim works in acrylic on canvas, paper and board, creating details using a variety of other media. Much of his work is  preference being hot-pressed watercolour paper, which is slightly absorbent, but allows the paint to be moved over the surface with relative ease.
