Tom Owen

British, born 1982

Tom Owen’s works feature scraped paint, loose brushwork, and non-representational subject matter. At first glance, they appear to squarely belong in the tradition of abstract expressionist painting. A closer viewing reveals that they are in fact mixed-media works assembled from varied materials—plasterboard, resin, Jesmonite, wax, and paint—and created through mechanical and digital printing processes. The unique and physical elements of abstract expressionist painting are here repeatable and immaterial, as seemingly gestural elements turn out to have been mechanically made by etching and silkscreening. “I have an interest in allowing the viewer to become conscious of every element of surface, in order to question on a simple level the act of viewing itself,” Owen says.
