Details

Tom Gerrard is an Australian painter whose works focus on suburban life.

"The Suburb" unveils a captivating narrative of everyday life, seamlessly blending universal elements with a uniquely Australian perspective. Through the lens of the artist's upbringing in Melbourne's western suburbs, familiar symbols transcend geographical boundaries, inviting viewers into a shared experience of suburban sanctuaries and cultural richness. The pot plant, leaves and trees symbolize not only sanctuary but also growth, anchoring the essence of resilience and vitality. Graffiti characters, reminiscent of Melbourne's street art culture, undergo a transformative journey, reflecting the diverse multicultural tapestry of the artist's upbringing. Each head tells a story, weaving together threads of identity and belonging. Doors, gates, manhole covers, and blinds emerge to the ebb and flow of everyday life in Australia, imbuing the artwork with a sense of familiarity and nostalgia. "The Suburb" celebrates the beauty of unity amidst diversity, inviting viewers to embark on a journey through the vibrant tapestry of Australian suburban life."
