Artist in Residence – Tom Farthing

Tom Farthing is a painter from London.  His work is concerned with re-imagining figurative painting in a contemporary context.  During his month at NES he has mainly been making drawings, watercolours and oil paintings from the landscape in and around Skagaströnd, and hopes to develop more work from his research on his return to London.  He has been particularly interested in the relationship between architecture and landscape.  Previous bodies of work have developed out of collage, found photographs and most recently still lives.  Examples of his work can be seen at  www.tomfarthing.co.uk and http://www.zimmerstewart.co.uk/tom-farthing
