Tom Cartmill – Born: 1965 UK
The materials themselves are the main focus. I concentrate on extending traditional techniques and developing more innovative processes. I slowly build up layers of media, frequently abrading, wearing them through, leaving indications as to how the work progressed.
Linked to this, is an interest in the way objects age, weathering and transforming with the passage of time; giving them a resonance that ‘the new’ lacks. I work at developing such a feel in my pictures.
Visual perception and the role of memory are themes that underpin much of my work. I am interested in the fact that our experiences necessarily affect our perception of events and the ways in which we recall them.
