TOM ESAM

 
 

Tom Esam’s artistic practice has taken him from London to Berlin and back again, leaving a body of work that subtly nods to the sensibilities of both these cultural hubs. From working in Berlin’s independent artistic community, he has brought to his work ideas of appropriation, found materials, and images which form part of an accessible visual language that allows him to express ideas and ask questions of the audience, without ever talking down to them. It is then in the refinement and clarity of form that we see London’s influence upon his sculpture; in such a busy and vibrant city it is essential to speak clearly if you are to be heard above the din. Without ever raising his voice, Tom Esam makes himself understood perfectly.
