Tim Fitzpatrick is a Scottish based artist, film-maker and independent curator. His principal art output is in the form of site-specific works and since 2015 he has collaborated closely with the school of Physics and Astronomy at the University of St Andrews. His various works with the university are brought together under the title of the Shine project - an interdisciplinary initiative which is led by Astronomer Dr Anne-Marie Weijmans.
The Shine project has also been a catalyst to showing and making new work internationally and especially in New Mexico. Tim is currently artist in residence for the Sloan Digital Sky Survey - based at Apache Point Observatory in southern New Mexico - and a regular contributor to the Las Cruces Space Festival in an ongoing collaboration with Colorado based artist Jeff Erwin.
Alongside the light and astronomy inspired works Tim continues to draw on many years experience of having led the Fife based community arts project The Red Field. The banner of The Red Field will continue as the mark of new Scottish community centred initiatives and these will follow familiar Red Field themes and passions of collaboration and shared moments in time.
In more recent years Tim has been fortunate to be able to represent the work of several internationally regarded artists and these had led to the curation of new work and retrospective shows in Scotland and project managing exhibitions for Lateral Lab in Japan.
