This week's spotlight - Tom Davidson
Tom graduated in Graphic Design in 1977 and turned to printmaking in 1984. Choosing lino-cuts as his preferred media. Tom also paints in various other media.
Tom’s work is in private collections all around the world as well as nearer home in the collections of Paintings in Hospitals (Scotland), The Houses of Parliament, Floors Castle and Durham University.
Tom Davidson’s lino-cuts are produced from a single block of linoleum, using a reduction process, printing each colour on top of the previous colour, working from light to dark.
All of Tom’s works are hand drawn, or cut and printed by the artist. Prints are produced in limited editions of between twenty and thirty.
“Tom is one of the best lino-cut artists in the country, producing works of incredible detail and vitality. His ability to depict light and contrast using this medium is quite simply remarkable. With these being produced in such limited numbers, our collection of Tom’s work changes on a regular basis.” David H Wallace – Gallery Owner
