Statement

Tom Levy (b.1987, Reading, UK) is a British artist who at the age of 18 began his artistic studies at the Cyprus College of Art, where he earned his foundation undergraduate BA in fine art, 2008. Between 2006 and 2008, Levy became an integral part of the Cyprus College community, later being awarded a four month fully paid residency at the school. In 2008, Levy returned to England to continue his studies, where he graduated with a BA in Fine Art and History of Art at Goldsmiths University in 2011. Levy has exhibited in a number of group exhibitions in both London and internationally, culminating in a solo exhibition, entitled Visual Meditations, in East London of August 2015. In May 2017 Tom graduated with his MFA from the New York Academy of Art where he was awarded three of the Academy's major honours. Currently he is artist in residence at New Yorks lower east sides 1969 gallery. 

The overriding themes throughout my work, always finds links to the other, the unexplainable and yet questionable, inspired by ideas behind eastern philosophy and western particle physics. The sublime, the abyss, inspiration, what is the meaning of exploration. In a metaphysical way the work attempts to navigate these subjects. Dipping in and out of what takes hold of his imagination, and rather scientifically exploring the notion of imagination and inspiration. By using abstract painting and teetering on the edge of representation, often the two are in flux. The work ranges from abstract colour-field style paintings on glass, to highly detailed figurative compositions, to gestural and intuitive abstract drawings on paper or canvas. For me, the unifying thread is the constant, obsessive search for new modes of experimentation and expression, as well as a kind of impossible search for finite answers in the infinite act of art-making.
