Tom Brawn is from Westport. The traces of the past and the contemporary concept of the Radicant, a plant that grows and is sustained from many roots, the immigrant, the exile, the global traveler becoming todays culture makers informs my work. I seek to embrace this Radicant philosophy and to explore perceived and actual realities, hidden and imperceptible truths. In my work as a florist I create atmospheres that subtly change perceptions and this is what informs my artwork too. Using architectural context and human relational activity, I create ‘other’ social and psychological spaces where subtle change can take place.
