Tim Carrington’s studio was designed and first used by Lois Manookian, a vibrant part of the county’s creative community for years. The studio is separated from the main house by a breezeway and it enjoys light and views from three sides.
Carrington’s work is shaped by his parallel involvement in journalism and painting. His paintings, whether landscapes or figure paintings, blend dream-world and real-world elements, emphasizing a sense of story and mood.
A number of recent paintings are part of a “Babel Tower” series. These emphasize cultural collisions, migrations, and wandering exploration. The sense of mayhem and split-off energies in these paintings is offset by the allure of the foreign or the truly new.
Carrington has exhibited his work at single-artist shows at Waverly Place Gallery in Bethesda. Md. and St. Christopher’s School in Richmond, and at group shows in Keene Valley, New York, Millwood, Virginia, and Christ Church Georgetown.
He formerly wrote for The Wall Street Journal, and his stories regularly appear in The Rappahannock News.
