As a practice, Tom Scicluna utilizes readily available materials and processes to create context informed sculptures and architectonic-based installations. Whether specific in geographic, economic or social reference, or more immediate and improvised in outcome and form, the project-based works refer to the situational nature of objects and spaces – associative as well as contradictory – with regards to the given conditions of production and display.
