Tom and Joanne’s work appears in numerous forms but often involves large-scale sculptural interventions in both galleries and the civic realm.
A key interest of their collaboration is how contemporary art makes meanings, and they have developed a particular grammar of motifs and patterns (often repeated and reconfigured from project to project) as a way to explore this. These artworks are often provocative and sometimes satirical. Writing is also key to the practice, either positioned in relation to objects and performances or as stand-alone artworks.
Tom is also involved in other collaborations and has a wider interest in the possibilities of artwork produced in this way. This includes work with the artist Lesley Guy and with the Northumbria University collaborative group, Neuschloss.
