Roving review #7 by Robert Cole
At first glance, it seems Tom Hemming is painting blurs of motion. In fact, in this series of beautiful works hanging in the Lewisham Art House, he is doing something rather different and very much more interesting. In the portraits, Hemming’s ambition is to capture the mood of the moment in which his subjects appear. In a similar way, he paints The Garden behind the Art House which, like most gardens, is ever-changing while also staying the same.
