Tom Cardwell is an artist, researcher and lecturer based in London. His studio practice uses painting as a means to explore how objects act as crossing points for successive layers of cultural narrative and history. These paintings and textile works owe much to the historic Dutch still life genre, in which the mundane is elevated through painting. Previous series of work have focused on artefacts including suits of armour and the customised ‘battle jackets’ made by heavy metal fans.
Examples of Tom's work can be found on his website.
