Tom Hiscocks’ sculptures are made from layers of metal or acrylic, welded together by hand to form a coherent whole. This means they change according to angle of view. From the side they are solid entities, viewed face on his sculptures almost disappear from sight.
Sculptor Tom Hiscocks must have been delighted when he conjured up the title ‘Chinese Whisper’ for a series among his new works.
Tom’s signature technique is to piece together his sculptures by layering 2D slices together to form a coherent 3D whole. To get the effect, every slice is subtly different from the last. Rather in the manner of a Chinese whisper. It’s an almost mathematical technique, and yet the result is rather profound. These are universal human figures: there’s real poignancy in the seated One series, for example.
Tom's anatomical works represent the latest phase in his development as a sculptor. He was born in 1963 and graduated from the Cambridge Art School with a first class honours degree. A very successful career followed, marked by highlights such as winning the Dr Supanee Gazeley Fine Art Prize in 2013.
Tom may be best known for his series ‘The Queens Beasts’. He made these life size animals from a mix of recycled materials including fire extinguishers and drinks cans. The works have been displayed at Blenheim Palace, Kings College, Cambridge, the Royal Welsh Show.
