Tom Polo – Paris Drawings: The Most Elaborate Disguise

14 June 2019

Tom Polo’s first major publication is now available: 'Tom Polo – Paris Drawings: The Most Elaborate Disguise', published by Perimeter Editions in partnership with STATION.

The publication documents the suite of forty-eight works on paper Tom created in Paris during his residency at the Cite Internationale des Arts as recipient of the 2015 Brett Whitley scholarship. Featuring an essay by Justin Paton – Head Curator of International Art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney – this book offers a lively vantage one of Australia's most intriguing young painters. Here, as with much of his broader practice, Polo subtly and poetically withholds as much as he reveals.

A significant presentation of 'The Most Elaborate Disguise' is currently on display at the Art Gallery of New South Wales as part of 'The National: New Australian Art', until 21 July.
