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.
