Tom Lines

Tom works predominantly in painting, writing, and sound. From the meeting points of these processes, he moves into other media to include performance and filmmaking. The work usually begins with a memory or embodied mind-states like depression and anxiety, developing as he explores these feelings deeper. Guiding the audience through domestic scenes, mundane fantasy and abject visions, he aims to generate a form of auto-fiction. Through his work, he offers glimpses of a liminal world. Surfaces rub against each other and are broken down. Hybrids and in-between things populate the spaces in the form of monstrous domesticated animals, bodily ornaments and soft toys.
