For some time now Tom has been interested in the minimal qualities of the sea and sky, using the horizon as a focal point of the picture. Often paintings take as their subject the specific time or moment of twilight.
“At the end of the day there is a progression of movements where light/colour is compressed above the horizon as it moves towards night. This resonant, sometimes sublime time, marks a poignant moment of the day.”
Tom's paintings have included extensive trips around Italy, the U.S.A. and the South West of England and in particular Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
