Signal Arts Centre is pleased to present this series of works by artist Tom Fox.


Regrettably Tom Fox passed away suddenly at the premature age of 44 in the midst of his preparations for this exhibition. We are fortunate that he left behind many finished pieces which will now form part of this last and posthumous exhibition.


Tom holds a BA Degree in Fine Art Painting from the Limerick School of Art and Design (L.I.T.). Tom's recent exhibitions include solo shows, 'The Hobbyhorse' in the Limerick Printmakers Gallery and 'Ordo' in the Normoyle Frawley Gallery, inclusion in 'Inertia and Beyond' at the Black Mariah Gallery, Cork, 'Inscapes' at the Thinkkcreative gallery, Limerick, 'A Hybrid Account' at the Bank of Ireland Art Centre, Dublin, Iontas Small Works Competition in Sligo and Quadrant at the Belltable Arts Centre, Limerick. He has had paintings exhibited in New York and Hong Kong.


Tom was heavily connected to and influenced by nature and the landscape and these his last paintings were created in his studio which nestles in the heart of the Ballyhoura valley, surrounded by a forest and eco-garden he had planted himself. A child of the eighties his work was heavily influenced by the graffiti/expressionist painters of the New York 80`s particularly Jean-Michel Basquiat, also by the Smiths, the Beastie Boys, the Stone Roses, the Punk movement, Charles Bukowski amongst a legion of other influences. Please do visit us from the 1st February to view what will unfortunately now be the final showing ever of Tom's work.


Opening Reception: Friday 4th February 7-9pm
