Tom Polo featured in Artist Profile

11 December 2019

Tom Polo was recently featured in Artist Profile magazine, where he spoke with Eugene Yiu Nam Cheung about the nature of his painting practice.

β€œIt may be difficult to name an Australian painter who creates work with as much intellectual rigour as Tom Polo. His practice encourages us to re-learn the act of seeing and to read paintings in a way that goes beyond the surface, into different worlds of performance and introspection. Polo breathes life into an age-old medium often seen as tired and worn down in the pulsating world of contemporary art.”
– Eugene Yiu Nam Cheung
