Tom leaper is one of the foremost sculptural artists and designers in the west of england. His work is on display in a variety of public and private settings, and works to engage, challenge and inspire the viewer. His sculptures comprise of both abstract and architectural influences, and the end product is something unique and both visually and technically awe inspiring.
I start where virtually anything is possible, continually refining my original ideas exploring the volumes and water dynamics of the feature, using positive and negative shape in conjunction with the volume to imply movement and presence; the work is a journey through ideas,
Toms public sculptures include the poignant Fishermens Memorial at the port of Newlyn and numerous markers for English Heritage and the South West Coastal Footpath.
TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE SUMMERHOUSE GALLERY
Here at The Summerhouse we love to support both established and new, up and coming artists with an affinity to Cornwall. We do recieve a very large volume of submissions, and although we take care to view every artists work, it is very difficult to discuss work with every single artist who gets in touch.
Please send us a selection of work which you feel best represents you, along with an artists statement and a list of other galleries which represent your work if applicable. You can email this to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to our address, with contact details (email or telephone) which we can reach you via should your application be successful.
We look forward to hearing from you.
