Tom graduated from the Cambridge Art School in June 2013 with a first class honours degree (Fine Art BA), and has exhibited in solo and shared exhibitions across the UK and Europe. In 2013 Tom won the Dr Supanee Gazeley Fine Art Prize in 2013 for his degree show exhibition. His works appear in private and public collections across the UK, Europe and America and we are delighted to be able to showcase his pieces at both of our galleries.
Discussing his works Tom says, ‘My personal interest relates to the layers of life and experience that makes each of us who we are. We typically show the outside layer of our being which, although it may bear some of the physical signs of things we have experienced, will not reveal how we felt about the ways in which we have experienced ‘being’.The same thing can be experienced by different people in different ways. So it is the suggestion of what happens inside that interests me.’
'The main difficulty is answering questions about making art. You can ask ‘how did you do X, or Y?’ and there is a technical answer to that which won’t answer the question that I think you are asking. Art is my language, and – in this case, for me – the work says it all. Spend time with it and you will know the challenges and the difficulties in making it.'
