Music and color are the core of Bavington’s paintings. He translates music into a visual experience with his unique system of pairing musical notes with specific hues in the color wheel. Colored stripes are his musical notes that allow him to playback the base lines, rhythms and string plucking guitar solos in his stunning retinal compositions that challenge visual perception. His love of 1960s and 70s rock and roll music by the Stones, Cream, Beatles and Hendrix is the underpinning that inspires his translations of color and abstraction into nearly audible visual experiences.

Tim Bavington (b. 1966, England) received his BFA from the Art Center (CA) and completed his MFA at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (NV). His work is included in the public collections of The Museum of Modern Art (NY), Albright-Knox Art Gallery (NY), Fredrick R. Weisman Collection (CA), Crocker Art Museum (CA), Palm Springs Art Museum (CA), San Diego (CA), Denver Art Museum (CO), McNay Art Museum (TX), Museum of Contemporary Art, Portland Art Museum (OR), Joslyn Art Museum (NE), Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Utah State University (UT) and the Honolulu Art Museum (HI) among others.
