Tom Colcord / by CreativPaper

An aural and emotive feast are words that we would use to describe artist Tom Colcord's work. Carefully placed layers and textures unearth the viewer's emotions. His work often includes ghosts, coyotes and other creatures that play the role of trickster deities, a ubiquitous occurrence in ancient religions and mythologies, confusing hierarchies and eliciting change. 

His work often takes form in the digital domain; once Tom is happy with it the real work begins. Translating a digital file into something tangible, with real depth and emotion. It is in this juxtaposition of the digital and material worlds that his work comes to life. Opposing forces, each trying to draw your attention. Different mediums, coming to life.
