    Destination Unknown is a new etching with monoprint by Tim Southall which has been made during the latter stages of the very strict Covid 19 lockdown imposed in Spain. To a lessor or greater degree our futures are always a destination unknown but as we exit the lockdown and enter the ‘new normality’ never has there been such an uncertain future. In this print the future is out in the misty distant, leaving it up to us as individuals as to how we shape it.

    This print has been created by making a drawing on a copper plate which is then etched in a traditional way. In the printing process the artist has then taken a second blank etching plate and inked this up freely with different coloured inks, overprinting the two plates ti create the finish image. Each print within the edition is varied – some marginally and some quite greatly. Here there are three different prints from which the viewer can choose.

Tim Southall studied Fine Art at Northumbria University and then printmaking Royal College of Art and l’école des beaux art, Paris. Based in London for twenty years, he now splits his time between London and his house and studio in Cadiz Province, southern Spain. The base upon which he builds his work is metaphysics: existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility. Using these guides, he express’s how he see’s and experiences the world. This he does mostly through the use of narrative within a landscape using either the human or animal form to create a narrative. He strives to make work which is delicate and shows a lightness of touch along with an eye for detail. He also uses the language of drawing and mark-making in an attempt to describe emotional depth and atmosphere.
