Tom Freeman

Tom Freeman is a multidisciplinary, Fremantle-based artist.

Since graduating from Curtin University with a Fine Art degree in 2007, Tom has continued his practice locally and nationally, predominantly in the media of drawing, painting and sculpture.

He has delivered a handful of solo exhibitions, including Formative at Venn Gallery in 2013 and Small Time at Paper Mountain in 2017.

In the catalogue text for Small Time, written by Sheridan Coleman, Tom’s work is described as ‘a thousand tiny experiments in clay, paint and wax’. In the same text, his materials and methods are referred to as ‘just local, and gentle. This nicely encapsulates Tom and his work.

In 2015, Tom was a finalist in the Bankwest Art Prize. He has exhibited in Western Australia at PICA, Fremantle Arts Centre and Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, as well as many smaller galleries, and has exhibited nationally in Sydney and Brisbane.
