Tom Cartmill

Drawing and painting, Mixed media
Lockdown Fragments No.69 | paper mounted on aluminium | 42x36x2cm

Contemporary paintings, drawings and sculpture characterised by their textured surfaces. Work inspired by memory, aging and an interest in visual perception.

‘There is a sense of the primordial in the highly textured and intricate work of Tom Cartmill. Abstract and realised largely in monochrome, his compositions suggest large themes of time and space, beginnings and endings, creation and decay... Much of his recent work is suggestive of microscopic entities or geographical features, but with a strange and hypnotic beauty that in no way relies on narrative interpretation.’ Sarah Williams
