Tom Polo’s recent practice uses text and humour to address notions of success, failure and contemporary society’s inherent desire to be a ‘winner’. Through painting and installation, Polo creates works that consider the corrosive anxiety of the human condition and our use of self-deprecation as a means of coping.
