Writing (MA)

Tom R

Tom R was born and raised in London and the vibrations of the city flow through his blood. A graduate of Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, Tom's writing and visual art practice explores how territories are claimed, how power is wielded and how systems break. Such broad concerns necessitate a balance of intimacy and as such, the artist situates himself within the work, filtering his position through the beats of his past, his present, his relationships — the endings and beginnings.

Tom R’s work explores the tension of hope when the world is burning.
