Tim Beavis was born in Dayton, Ohio in 1944. He attended The Museum School in Boston, Mass in the mid 60’s. He lives and paints in Kittery Point, Maine. He is best known for his landscape series. Presently he’s exploring more abstract concepts. “The origins of personal creativity are hard to pinpoint,” according to artist Tim Beavis. However, citing an “inability to relate to the outside world,” he believes that his inclination to make art “evolved from a personal crisis.” He became an artist, he says, to give himself a voice. That intensity of purpose is deeply felt when viewing Beavis’s paintings. He primarily favors landscapes, with a focus on “the horizon line and the quality of light,” he says. Reducing his scope to these two elements allows Beavis to explore the ever-changing landscape via a specific entry point. The consistency of his compositions is not repetitive, but rather it reveals the infinite possibilities for finding beauty in simplicity.
