Thom Robert Smith
Over the decade in which “Thom” Roberts Smith has attended Studio ARTES, in Hornsby, Sydney, he has consistently approached his art making with a spirit of experimentation and spontaneity. In the process he has developed a portfolio of work which encompasses a range of mediums and styles including drawing, installation, painting, performance and photography. Thom is a skilled draftsman, well able to quickly translate landscapes and portraits in a traditional and representational artistic style. Yet, Thom’s primary interest is in his installation practice. From train stations to galleries, Thom arranges and positions his unique and distinct series of photocopied imagery to transform spaces, always creating entirely new environments and experiences for those who encounter his work. Thom Roberts Smith is represented by Studio ARTES.
