Tom Borgas

Often distinguished by brightly coloured rods of timber or steel, Tom Borgas’ sculptural forms act as an investigation of the space between image and object, virtual and physical, maker and viewer. His practice seeks to draw attention to the compression and degradation of the physical world caused by growing might of the digital realm. Borgas calls upon the aesthetic and structural motifs of this domineering new power within his sculptural works in an attempt to highlight this tension between the physical and cyber world. 
Brogas works across multiple platforms, including gallery shows, project-based installations, and temporary and permanent public art. At present Borgas has been working with Nonda Katsalidis of FK Architects and Level Crossing Removal Project to deliver an ambitious public art commission for the Moreland City Council. 
Borgas has exhibited extensively across Australia, including PICA (Perth), The Jam Factory (Adelaide), Artisan (Brisbane), Salamanca Arts Centre (Hobart), MARS gallery (Melbourne), Stockroom (Kyneton) and as part of the 2018 Kyneton Contemporary Art Triennial. He has completed many signifiant public commissions, having worked with UAP, The City of Brisbane, Rockhampton City Council, Splendour in the Grass, Sculpture Co, The Hilton Adelaide, Gravity and Other Myths for Adelaide Festival, The Adelaide Festival Centre, The City of Adelaide, Illuminate Adelaide and Renewal SA.
