Biography

Translation in progress

Tom Hiscocks graduated from Cambridge Art School in 2013 with a first class honours degree and that year was announced as the winner of The Dr Supanee Gazeley Fine Art Prize. His unique sculptures have since appeared in solo and shared exhibitions across Europe and as a result are now included in private and public collections on both sides of the Atlantic.

His work explores the layers of life and experience that, combined, make each of us who we are. We typically show the outside layer of our being; which, although it may bear some of the physical signs of our experiences, will never reveal our complete composition. A financial advisor, for instance, may also be an accomplished musician, a caring father and sufferer of low self-esteem – none of which would be immediately apparent upon initial observation.

Tom hand crafts each layer of his work individually, constructing his sculptures in such a way that each piece changes as the angle from which it is viewed is altered. There are times a particular work will seem almost transparent and suddenly completely solid as the viewer simply moves around it.

As a parallel journey to my art, I study practical philosophy and meditation, which provides its own insights to the exploration of being human and, as a result, my artworks. Importantly there is the idea of ‘Atman’, or ‘our true being’ which is not our body, mind nor emotions. It is the aspect of our ‘being’ that connects each of us with the universe. This is something that fascinates me, which I strive to explore during the production of each of my works.
