Tom Collison is a UK artist based in Hertfordshire. Originally he trained as a print designer at Leeds College of Art, here his practice grow to look more into exploration of materiality and begun to become more sculptural. After gaining a degree he went on to complete a Masters at the Royal College of Art, where he began experimenting with materials to create sculptural furniture.
His work looks to depict the human interaction involved with the making of objects as it reflects a similar process to that of natural growth. Growth within nature has always been key source of inspiration to his work, whether its drawing the details from an underside of a leaf or attempting to replicate the bulges in trees out of textiles. His work questions the innate comfort humans gained from the imperfections we see in nature.
