orchard by tom sewell
Tom Sewell’s practice is involved in trying to understand human relationships to things in nature through image. How does an image change reality? What role do fictions and the imagination have in making the world?
Tom’s work explores the porous border between the reality of the elemental landscape (its stones, plants, air and water) and the human idea of places and things; trying to get lost in the interpretive ambiguities involved in attempting to apprehend the world through images.
Orchard explores interactions with nature through print, sculpture and drawing via the quincunx, piles of stones, arrangements of sticks, mouldy geophytes and Woden’s hat of knowledge. It’s partly about gardening & glyphs, salt & spices, abundance & apocalypse.
