People flow, vessels drift, ink runs, light trails, tracks are traced: ‘The Dynamics of Drifting’, presents a series of works that forge and record passages through land and water. This is the first UK solo exhibition of artist Tim Knowles’s work since 2014 and is the most extensive presentation of his work to date.

He charts the points at which human and natural designs converge. The routes his various materials – light, ink, water, and wind – travel, pivot on the meeting of human will and ingenuity with forces beyond our control: the direction and force of the winds, the flow of water, and the pull of gravity. Knowles’s work calls on us to embrace this precariousness with a spirit of childlike wonder and adventure.

Tim Knowles exhibits work internationally, most recently as part of ‘And what, for example, am I now seeing?’ at Galleria Continua in Paris; ‘Precarious Nature’, a new commission for Centre of Contemporary Art, Christchurch, New Zealand; ‘Lines of Transparency’ MSK Ghent; and ‘Second Autumn’ Art Stations, Poznan. He also participated in Nuit Blanche Toronto in 2015 with a major public work.
