Tom Wilson is an Edinburgh based artist and the former owner of the Open Eye Gallery. For four decades he has maintained a fascination with drawing and has doggedly pursued the ambition of mastering ‘The Draughtsman’s Art’ before branching into the exploration of any other discipline. Depending on the critical success of this and other exhibitions, macramé or flower arranging may be two worthy of consideration. Without knowing when that moment will arrive, he continues to pick up, drop off and mess around with ancient history, the old masters, popular culture and the most important element in his oeuvre, the mundane. If this mix in any way moves the viewer to think, or become a participant in any or all of these drawings, he will deem the exercise a success. If, however, the opposite occurs he will revert to plan B and deem the exercise a success for purely selfish reasons.

Since setting out on this long voyage of discovery, he has exhibited in many galleries, including the Richard Demarco Gallery, Edinburgh; Galerie Tendenz, Sindelfingen, Germany; the National Museum of Fine Arts, Valetta, Malta; The Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts; The Royal Scottish Academy; the Society of Scottish Artists and – last but not least – the Edinburgh Sketching Club, where at the tender age of fifteen he discovered among other things, the intrinsic beauty of the 2H pencil and the tactile quality of the putty rubber.
