Wood engravings by TIM JONES
Tim Jones is a renowned wood engraver whose works are represented in numerous Australian and Overseas collections. Born in Wales, he arrived in Australia in 1983. His limited-edition prints have historical links with the masterpieces of British 18th Century wood engraver Thomas Berwick. The works are small in scale due to the size of the wood blocks used, the technique requiring him to engrave the end grain to give stability and strength. His subjects have been described as romantic narratives, often portraying Australian forests and wild life.
