    Tom Banks

    painting

    These paintings are made up of scaled-down approximations of real homes that exist on the suburban estates around the town within which I live. The benign uniformity of the architecture found in these well-manicured suburban neighbourhoods engenders an uneasy sense of isolation and conformity.

    Built from ply board, the majority of this work is wall hung, protruding into space, in limbo. Working from photographs taken at night the details of the houses are painted onto the flat surfaces in requisite muted tones. There is no warm glow emitting from the windows. These house shaped paintings are conspicuous by the apparent lack of inhabitants, fuelling confusion and self-doubt, forcing the viewer to question perceived certainties. The presence of absence suggests the drama is occurring ‘off-screen’.
