Photographer: Tom Hackney
Tom Hackney (b.1977, UK) lives and works in London. Hackney’s work is generated in response to specific historical materials encountered in the process of making, researching and reflecting. He does not consider himself a painter, despite his work often being comprised of paint. Rather than a formal engagement with paint itself, he is interested in painting as a mode, a vessel and a behaviour; a reverberating point of exchange between subjective and objective material.
Hackney graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University (BA Fine Art, First Class) in 2000 and Goldsmiths College, University of London (MFA Fine Art) in 2008. Recent exhibitions include Tremors (solo), BREESE LITTLE, London (2013), Essence of Things, Ambacher Contemporary, Munich (2013), Eye to the Ground, ROOM, London (2012), PLURAL, BREESE LITTLE at WW Gallery, London (2013), Motion Capture, Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny and Glucksman Gallery, Cork, Ireland (2013/12), Double Vision, Lion + Lamb Gallery, London (2012), Curator’s Egg Altera Pars, Anthony Reynolds Gallery, London (2012), Summer Exhibition, Royal Academy of Arts, London (2012), Point.
