“Because you must not avert your eyes, this is what is coming at us. This is what (…) a collective, anonymous body of majority wants to see on television”.– Werner Herzog
Tom carries out his practice through the production of unique monoprints that adhere to rules he has predetermined. He has an interest in the historical implications of colour and negative space and how this compares to a contemporary reading of these same characteristics. The subjects of his prints are, for the most part, taken from various films, the works also reference current technology and cinematic visual language. Film, as well as other popular medias, also act as a historical reference point for the artworks, as the media created within a certain time is a direct reflection of the society that consumes it.
