Timothy Growcott is a textile artist/screen printer born trained in Melbourne, with experience in studios across Australia. His designs present natural symbols in hyper-synthesized forms, pushing the language of decoration into more contentious territory. Working with pattern repeat, he is fascinated by the ongoing play between raw original and the manufacture of multiples. In addition to his own practice, Timothy delivers training in Screen Print Design and Technique, lecturing at Charles Darwin University (2009 – 2012) and Batchelor Indigenous Institute of Education (2015). He continues to champion Indigenous textile designers from remote NT communities via extensive teaching and mentoring projects.
Timothy's last solo show in 2012 was a dramatic departure from textiles, featuring bold graphics screen printed on acrylic, wood and paper. He is currently working on designs for a show at Oak Hill Gallery in Mornington.
