About

Tim Eden is a self-taught artist whose more recent work comprises of classic figurative paintings with an underlying hint of surrealism. Tim looks to explore the ambiguity of human consciousness and our attempt to reconcile meaning for our own existence.

Growing up on the family farm - just outside the South Australian Mallee town of Geranium - his formative years were spent pouring over colouring books, developing intricate plans for racing cars and underground lairs and losing himself amongst the harsh and wondrous landscape, all the while avoiding rabbit burrows and king brown snakes wherever possible.

Imagination and creativity remained the constant companion throughout life, demanding expression through music, airbrush art, polymer clay sculptures and formally with a Degree in Industrial Design with Honours.

With a young family of his own and the change of perspective this brings, the need for creative expression outside the constraints of his product design career continued to bubble beneath the surface when in mid 2013 the seemingly obvious need to take it more seriously finally took hold.

Working mainly in oil, Tim aspires to produce work that leaves the viewer immersed within the deeper story behind the image, behind the eyes, behind that which makes up their own thoughts and beliefs.
