Tom Polo in Brisbane this week: ‘One bad painting…’

According to one of Tom Polo’s 2011 text based art works shown earlier this year at Grant Pirrie in Sydney ‘Somebody once told me that even one bad painting in an exhibition will stop people remembering an otherwise stellar show‘. Fortunately, there are no bad paintings in this exhibition.

Tom’s work (presented in Brisbane by Diagram Artist Run Initiative) appears in the window space at Ryan Renshaw Gallery this week – opening Friday night 18 November. Shows by Nicholas Folland ‘Domestic Distractions‘ and Laith McGregor ‘Spook’, open at the Gallery the same night.
