Tim Coad - Tasmanian Artist

b.1996

Tim Coad's practice explores the expanded condition of contemporary place-based photography and drawing. Investigating the disputed landscape, while tracing the impacts of civilisation in the local Tasmanian environment - Tim engages a range of interdisciplinary strategies that explore the collision between the forgotten place, the constructed landscape, and the narratives that emerge when one is framed within the other.
