We are delighted to be working with Slade trained Tom Hiscocks with a series of figurative sculptures in base metal and acrylic.
Tom is interested in art as an expression of how it is to be.
His ‘Queens Beasts’ series raised questions about representation and identity; his award winning ‘My Space’ sculpture series suggested the layers that make up the individual, and ‘Being Me’ examined how we reflect the environment around us.
‘Our Space’ is a series of drawings that highlights the relationship between the individual and his or her surroundings. The work questions which aspects of a person and their environment define them. Tom’s ‘My Space’ drawings take an atypical view of the subject (himself) to challenge the conventional ways in which we may be understood.
Tom graduated from the Cambridge Art School with a first class honours degree. He won the Dr Supanee Gazeley Fine Art Prize 2013. His winning sculpture was purchased by the University, and is on display at the Post Graduate Medical Institute in Chelmsford.
Tom is interested in the role of verbal and non verbal languages. His essay: ‘Phenomenology and the embodiment of art’, highlights that both the material, and the physical process of making artwork, embue the work with resonances that cannot easily be expressed verbally.
Tom lives and works in Cambridgeshire.
