Tom Woolner is a Visiting Tutor (Studio Practice) at the Ruskin; he convenes the BFA Basic Skills workshops, and is the BFA Degree Show tutor.
While his practice is sculptural at its core, Tom's recent work has taken the form of performance based events in various contexts and locations. By using these different outlets, he aims to continually develop and test his playful, cartoon-dumb language.
Recent exhibitions and performances include: More Soup and Tart, Barbican, London; An Evening with Archimboldo, Site Gallery, Sheffield; The Inside Out Cave is You! (with Lilli Hartmann), Galleria Moriarty, Madrid; Radio IPS, International Project Space, Birmingham; Going to Bakeries all Day Long, Ovada, Oxford; A Monument to Averages, Rockwell, London.
His work has been featured in Frieze, Art Monthly, Modern Painters and The Guardian and he is the recipient of awards from Site Gallery, The Elephant Trust, The Danish Arts Council and Beck’s Futures.
