Picture of the Month

January 2018
by Tom Cartmill

Reverberation X

Reverberations X
Ink on paper
105 x 73cm

I have always loved Tom Cartmill’s art since the first example of his work that I saw in an exhibition and I have continued to be drawn to his exquisite pieces ever since. They are executed with such precision and care, drawing the viewer in to admire the close detail and then out again to look at and extol the work from a distance.

I am drawn to every one of his Reverberations series with their black, grey and white tones, but my eye was particularly drawn to Reverberations X. He uses lines in such interesting ways with them seeming to flow effortlessly over the paper, with the juxtaposition of non-linear mark making adding other fascinating dimensions to the piece, including adding depth.

Take a break from the January sales and pop into the Reading Museum. The Lilies for Oscar Wilde are still on display in the Box Room, where you can also see our current Museum Highlight hanging on the wall next to the Lilies (below the Moose's Head!).
