Tom Richardson

Tom Richardson is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Vancouver. He holds a BFA in Film, Video and Integrated Media from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver, where he received the 2015 President’s Media Award for best installation.

Richardson’s cinematically infused works seek to reframe historical events for a contemporary context through drawing lines of research both from historical accounts and narrative fictions. Centred around animation, Richardson’s practice expands to include sculpture, installation, and 2D works. He is a founding member of Duplex, a DIY art space that hosts a gallery and studios on Fraser Street in Vancouver.

Recent exhibitions include Peer Pressure, Plaza Projects, Richmond (2017); Game/Video Art, Milan Triennale (2016); The Bureau of True Vision, Spare Room, Vancouver (2016); I Was Trying to Describe You to Someone, Flux Gallery, Aceartinc., Winnipeg (2015); and Break the Legs of What I Want to Happen, Access Gallery, Vancouver (2014). Richardson has also exhibited and performed throughout Europe and North America under the moniker Tommy Chain. Tragically, Tommy Chain was lost during a rare Canadian sandstorm enroute to exhibit in Winnipeg in August of 2015 and hasn’t been seen since.
