Tom Moore at The Hughes Gallery

XX Mon. YYYY

South Australian artist Tom Moore is showing an exhibition of his trademark quirky characters at the Hughes Gallery in Devonshire Street, Surry HIlls, NSW. Walking up the road from my studio in search of a cheap lunch I happened to wander into the gallery and was greeted by a lively display of glass sculpture, instantly recognisable as Tom Moore's.

Robert Cooke, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Photography and Design, Art Gallery of Western Australia has written an eminently readable essay on the exhibition, titled Prehistoric Restraint, for the Gallery's room sheet.

For me personally the most exciting aspect to the show was the inclusion of Tom's preparatory drawings. Being such a process-driven artist myself, these works on paper had enormous appeal both as artworks in their own right and as evidence of the thought processes involved in the production of the sculptures.
