Tom Homewood: The Unseen Everything

The Unseen Everything is the first solo exhibition of British landscape artist Tom Homewood at Gallery 94.

This exhibition has now ended.

The Unseen Everything is the first solo exhibition of British landscape artist Tom Homewood at Gallery 94.

Tom Homewood (b.1972) is an artist who has spent much of the last decade drawing and painting on-site at Glyndebourne. Focusing on the elusory shifts of light and shadow, Homewood’s familiar forms of the opera house’s buildings and gardens are transformed through a vibrant palette and energetic application of paint. Invigorated by an emphasis on colour, Homewood’s stirring works celebrate the onset of spring and pulsate with promise.

Alongside oil paintings, the exhibition also offers a glimpse into Homewood’s practice. For the first time, his drawings will also be on display, many executed plein air. These drawings provide a new perspective on Homewood’s paintings, revealing his delicate mark-making and accomplished handling of pictorial space. The Unseen Everything is the title of the largest painting in the exhibition. Drawn from a passage in The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame – Homewood’s favourite book as a child – it suggests notions of reflection, longing and the beauty of something still to be seen.

You can visit the exhibition in Gallery 94 at our free Art Open Day on Sunday 20 March.

Ticket holders for our guided tours of the opera house, gardens and turbine this March are very welcome to visit the exhibition, and it can also be viewed by appointment.
