Photography (MA)

Thomas Moen

Thomas Moen (b.1994) is an artist based in London. He completed a BA in Photography at the University of Brighton in 2015 before moving to London and subsequently beginning an MA at the Royal College of Art in 2018. His practice sits at the border of the photographic and the sculptural and is an investigative process, intertwining these two disciplines. His method, which stems from anxiety, attempts to manifest that feeling through artistic production. He uses the casting of resin as an indexical tool, with contained fragments of imagery as well as gestures of repetition on and with matter. The resulting photo-sculptures are shaped by personal experience, history, and an intense engagement with materiality. 

Recent exhibitions include: Connection Lost at RCA Dyson Gallery in London; Cluster, Ugly Duck, London, 2020; Everything the Same//Everything a Little Different at The Art Academy, London, 2019; Hot Sheet at The Department Store, London, 2019.

Photography (MA)

Gently malicious whispering through clenched teeth in deep night. Picking and picking at a hangnail, dripping thoughts revolving. Heavy breathing in a heavy chest. Something is sat there, something oozes, something whispers. Incessant tapping, drumming fingers, stinging eyes, chattering teeth. Setting and transforming, hard and glass-like.
