Tom Polo | of defence and doubt

Tom Polo (b. 1985, Sydney, Australia) uses painting and painted environments to explore how conversation, doubt, gesture and ways of looking are embodied within abstracted acts of portraiture.
Frequently incorporating text and figurative elements, his works draw on acute observations, absurdist encounters and personal histories.
An ongoing interest across his practice is the emotional and performative relationships between people within social space.
