About

Tom Ansell is constantly concerned with the fabric between what is seen in the subject and what is not‚and the things that come from leaving information out or adding things in. Earlier work is concerned with philosophical ideas such as death and existence. Currently‚his work explores a foray into drawing from life and seeing the real subject‚rather than the imaginary ones.
His qualifications include a BA Hon. in Visual Art at Edith Cowan University and a BA: Visual Art Major from Edith Cowan University.
He is currently studying a Cert IV Training and Assessment in order to teach art in the VET sector.
