An artist based in London, Tom Lovelace’s work sits at the intersection of photography, sculpture and performance, exploring the semantics of the everyday, revealing and reimagining materials, processes and histories. His practice is underpinned by interruptions and reinventions of the unexceptional and the workaday and central themes to his research and visual inquiry encompass labour, minimalism and the history of photography.

Tim studied Photography at the Arts University Bournemouth, before studying Art History at Goldsmiths College in London. He is a visiting tutor at the Royal College of Art, London and the Arts University, Bournemouth and a regular speaker at universities and galleries.

Fascinated by the photographic image, and its complicated relationship with the three-dimensional, physical world – he creates images, sculptures, performances and installations which explore materiality. In 2015, he was nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, Foam Paul Huf Award and the Prix Pictet Award.

The Bussey Building artist has built up quite a name for himself, as his work has been featured in broadsheets and magazines such as The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Financial Times, Time Out London and Dazed and Confused.

His book Work Starts Here is currently part of the Tate Artist’s Book Collection and his second published work, This Way Up, was made in response to his solo exhibition of the same title at Flowers Gallery in 2015.
