tom lomax - sculptor
Tom Lomax started his working career as an apprentice engineer.
For ten years he worked in the locomotive and aircraft industry.
Following a foundation course at Wigan Art School, he went on to study painting at Central School of Art and Design, completing his education as a post graduate student at the Slade School of Fine Art. After a further 5 years teaching in various art schools, he joined the staff at the Slade in 1983 as a part-time tutor until his retirement in 2010.
In the 80's and 90's the emphasis of his studio practice was focused on sculpture, working in bronze on both small pieces and large public commissions.
In 2002 he was awarded a Henry Moore scholarship to further his interest in the use of the computer in fine art practice.
At this time he initiated a research project at the Slade investigating the potential of CAD-CAM and 3d imaging in relation to fine art practice.
Since his retirement from the Slade he has worked in liaison with the research team at the CFPR at UWE developing his interest in 3d printed colour sculpture.
His studio is in South East London.
