About Tom Bishop

Artist Statement: For years I have sculpted primarily using a welder, hammer and steel. Currently, I have been developing a series of works composed from dead trees cut down to build a dam several decades ago and stone from ancient ocean bottoms. These pieces are “found items” obtained from local area lakes and rivers in Central Texas. The materials I`m using were already in the process of being recycled by nature. So…in a weird way…I am interrupting that event to create this art. Yet; always knowing that down the road, Mother Nature will ultimately receive them back and finish the job she started. I must thank her for a good part of what you see. I will; however, take some credit for adding a little imagination and on occasion a touch of humor.
