Tim Goulding Art

Tim Goulding was born in Dublin in 1945 and has lived and worked near Allihies on the Beara peninsula, West Cork since 1969. He is a member of AOSDANA (Aosdana was established in 1981 to honour those artists whose work has made an outstanding contribution to the arts in Ireland.) Since 1964 he has exhibited extensively, including solo and group shows in Ireland, England, Portugal and the USA. This website archives an artistic journey of over fifty years.

For many years Tim has worked in series, often spending three or four years on one subject. These collections can be radically different in both style and content but always stay true to a response to what appears in his life both visually and emotionally. The modus operandi remains 'see and play'.

‘A Day in the Life, Tim Goulding’

We are delighted to invite you to this very special ‘Private View, to experience this captivating exhibition “THE MUSIC ROOM” by Ireland’s renowned artist Tim Goulding. Tim, a member of ‘Aosdana”, (the official collective of the most distinguished artists in Ireland), brings to the ICC his latest exhibition of paintings, which have been inspired by music, emphasising harmony and rhythm.

“I constructed the paintings as I might arrange a musical work, paying attention to counterpoint, harmony and the spaces between that imply rhythm. I am trying to emphasise a feeling of uplift, joy, and harmony. ‘Singing with colour’ is a good analogy”. –Tim Goulding

‘Tim Goulding has developed a compelling style which can rise with a swell into realism, and subside again into abstraction without losing its consistency: and can be seen as the natural succession in Irish Art to the work of George Russell in that it represents an inner landscape at the same time as being true to what is visible to the eye.’ - Hilary Pyle, Irish Times, 1989
