stories From the surgery

February 2019

In September 2018, Lisbon’s Casa Independente opened its doors to painter Tom Leamon to start an artistic residency.

Stories From The Surgery showcased Leamons process as a painter during the months he was on residency at the Small Surgery Studio. From ‘Old Friends’, a mural at the entrance to the Casa Independente, to large scale works such as Alakazam created onsite Stories From The Surgery provided visitors with an intimate first-hand view into the environment in which these works were created.

During the exhibition, the doors to the Small Surgery Studio where opened one last time, giving guests a unique opportunity to view the art studio that served as the context for the creation of all the works.
