It’s been a whirlwind year for Tom, who was crowned Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year in 2017. Next on the travel enthusiast’s hitlist is an art residency in New Zealand – after our Summer Exhibition, of course!
His mood-evoking pieces reveal an interest in the formal elements of composition: structure, perspective, shape and light. Through this, Tom hopes to explore the boundaries between abstraction and figuration.
Influenced by mid-20th century artists like Edward Hopper and Richard Diebenkorn, the Burton-on-Trent based teacher often depicts places of transit. He works on quadruple-primed MDF boards with thin layers of oil paint on a painting wedge. To build a relationship between the studies, he works on several boards simultaneously.
Tom says: “Winning Landscape Artist of the Year is without doubt my biggest highlight to date. Now I’m aiming to combine my love of art and travel to create an exciting new body of work.”
