The archaeologist of stone

  • • For Tom, it all started with a stone, a hammer and a chisel
  • • Through his work he generates a personal 3-D language
  • • He loves the mix of intellectual and physical exertion

One of Tom Flick’s favourite aphorism is by Georg Baselitz, the famous German painter, sculptor and graphic artist: “Sculpture is like archaeology: you dig in and you find something.” Tom learned many different techniques such as drawing, modelling, welding, casting, stone and wood sculpture whilst studying at the Fine Arts School of the Lycée Technique des Arts et Métiers in Luxembourg and at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. In 2001, he was one of the founding members of the Sixthfloor collective, which comprises several artists in a former sawmill in Koerich, Luxembourg. He also has a workshop for monumental sculpture called Stonezone in Sweden. His favourite materials are sandstone, marble, granite and alabaster, from which he updates his creations, which he exhibits in Luxembourg and abroad.

Olympus

The Greek Gods are the residents of Mount Olympus. The steps symbolise the hierarchy of their importance. Thus, Mount Olympus seems like a floating mountain in the absence of gravity.
