Rook Lane Blog

At the end of October, London-based sculptor – Tom Lomax – will be exhibiting a selection of his magnificent sculptures and 3D prints at Rook Lane.

Recently retired from the Slade School of Fine Art, Lomax is a practising sculptor and is the artist behind an array of significant public art commissions (see here and here).

He will be exhibiting a series of seven colour printed sculptures, entitled: ‘A Week of Angels’ through November. Each angel sculpture represents one of the seven days of the week that it governs, derived from Barrett’s “The Magus”. The images have then been generated in CAD (Computer Aided Design) from their respective “Sigil” (angel signature) to create 3D prints, which will be on display along with related bronzes, maquettes and digital prints.

Fascinated by angels – the notion that they are not simply humans with extraordinary powers and can fly, but are complex cultural metaphors that are at once highly personal and yet understood universally – Tom will offer workshops, alongside his exhibition, exploring this phenomenon. He will look at angels as metaphors and how we might represent these metaphors in visual terms – exploring structures, geometries and patterns.

The workshops will take place on Saturday 12 November and Sunday 13 November. Booking is essential and is on a first-come first-served basis. Participants are asked to contribute £25 towards the cost of materials but refreshments and tutorial will be free of charge. Please contact me – Annie Ridout – for more details: annie@rooklanearts.org.uk 01373468040

The exhibition will run from Saturday 29 October – Thursday 17 November.

The Private View will be held from 6-9pm on Friday 28 October.
