Tom Squires has been working with words on page for the past six years. Before then he made a series of paintings/objects. The work included in this exhibition is the key text produced during this writing period (late 2003 - 2009).

Tom is currently working on a large scale painting/object based work, which is based on the last work and suicide of an untranslated nineteenth century German philosopher.
