Fragments is an exhibition of drawings by Tom Cartmill, looking at the possibilities of paper and a monochrome colour palette of hand-made paints. Much of the work in this show has been made during the recent lockdowns, pieced together from older, repurposed drawings.

The exhibition title partly refers to the fact that by their nature, our memories, our understanding of people, places, concepts are far from whole. That however much we toil in our understanding, or how adeptly we master skills, we do not achieve completeness.

To accompany the exhibition Tom will be giving an artist’s talk. The event is free and open to all. Check the gallery website for details.

Currently working from a studio unit on a farm just outside Reading, Tom Cartmill is gaining increasing recognition for his drawing. His work has been selected for a number of major exhibitions including the RA Summer Exhibition (2016 & 2017); The Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh (2020); Royal West of England Academy, Bristol (2016, 2017 & 2019); The Derwent Drawing Prize (2016); The Art Gemini Prize (2017); National Open Art Prize (2017); The London Group Open (2017)… Currently, a drawing is on a year-long UK tour of biennial New Light Art Prize Exhibition (launched at Scarborough Museum & Art Gallery in September 2020, with a final exhibition at Bankside Gallery, London in November 2021).

Cartmill’s drawing also won him the Rabley Editioning Prize in 2017 (seeing the launch of a new print edition at the London Original Print Fair at The Royal Academy of Arts, in 2018). In 2019, he was selected as a ‘Future Now Artist’ for the Aesthetica Art Prize.

Tom’s work can be found in numerous private collections around the world and an increasing number of public and corporate collections, including Reading Museum, The University of Chichester Art Collection, New College Chapel (Oxford University), Duchess of Kent Hospice and Xafinity Consulting LLP.
