The Gaia Principle: 19 May – 1 June
How organisms interact with their inorganic surroundings on earth to form a synergistic self-regulating complex system that helps to maintain and perpetuate the conditions for life on the planet (involving the earth’s biosphere, atmosphere, oceans and soil). (Wikipedia)
Tom Scase’s new work is made up of disparate elements that combine to form a symbiotic whole, where the image has no words, is beyond verbal description and exists in its visual form only as a specialised component, bringing to our attention how we interact and are a part of this perilous and extraordinary nature.
His canvas is a collage of ideas, sometimes deceptively simple, others as a cacophony of intricate brush strokes from which a strange and beautiful form emerges.
Tom is an elected member (2001) of the prestigious London Group. He has won prizes for painting and photography and has exhibited widely. He lives and works in Highgate, London.
Highgate Gallery open Tuesday-Friday 13:00-17:00
