Tom Mead

Wimbledon College of Arts

Through portraiture, Mead explores the relationship between traditional painting and technology through depicting ‘glitches’. Mead works by building layer upon layer in fast-drying acrylic paint. He likes the often dull effect that acrylic paint emits, mimicking the quality of basic photography or the effect of natural lighting on film. Film has a huge influence on Mead. In his practice he becomes the ‘director’ of his paintings; planning a scene, composing the shot and deciding what would happen over a length of time.
