Tom Varley (b. 1985) is an artist working in a range of media, including film, writing, painting and collage. His work is concerned with the relationship between symbolic communication and abstraction, often playing on malfunctioning speech or defective typographies to reveal the arbitrariness of the shapes and sounds that make up written and spoken language. Tom is based in Glasgow.


Well-Done is a programme of commissions in which Rhubaba has invited Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau, BAZ and Tom Varley to each host a meal during the winter months of 2013. The meal, its structure and the potential act of hosting, is intended as a starting point for the artists to each develop new work (be that an event, an evening of eating and talking or something else entirely).


Project supported by Creative Scotland.
