MARTIN SMITH | MAKING INTRODUCTIONS | SERIES THREE
Following the success of the first and second series of Messums’ ‘Making Introductions’, we were commissioned to create a third at the end of 2022. With Messums now known as a platform for creative expression across different artistic genres, this four-part series explores the language of creativity through the artists’ choice of medium. By particularly focusing on the techniques that stand at the core of their respective studio processes, the films allow each artist to reveal the concepts behind their art.
As part of the third ‘Making Introductions’ series, we spent a day with Tom Waugh at his studio in Devon, exploring the art of sculpture. With a background in classical stone sculpture, Tom uses traditional materials and techniques to depict contemporary objects, juxtaposing temporality with permanence. With many of his works exploring hyper-realism, we were lucky enough to witness Tom’s genius at turning stone into an everyday object, first hand.
