Tom Lovelace lives and works in London. He studied Fine Art, specialising in Photography at the Arts University Bournemouth, receiving First Class Honours before reading Art History at Goldsmiths College, London. Lovelace works at the intersection of photography, sculpture and intervention. His practice is grounded in a reinvention of everyday objects, materials and processes. The history of photography and its relationship with the disciplines of sculpture and performance underpin his research.
Lovelace has exhibited across the UK, Europe and USA. His work has been displayed alongside Richard Wentworth, Eva Stenram, Graham Gussin, Martha Rosler and Ai Wei Wei.
In 2015, Lovelace was nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize and the Prix Pictet award. Features and reviews include The Guardian, The Telegraph, Financial Times, Time Out London, Contemporary Art Society, Dazed and Confused, Philosophy of Photo- graphy, Art Licks, Of The Afternoon, Source Photographic Review, and The Rebel Magazine. His book Work Starts Here is currently held in the Tate Artist’s Book Collection.
