“The style of Tom Hageman is filled with paradoxes. It is mathematical yet organic, spacious yet flat, monumental and extravagant.
All these seeming contradictions merge into a highly personal and magical style in which elements of nature and culture complement one another to form a playful unity.”
“As a true scientist of life Hageman is intrigued by the laws of nature, deciphering and depicting them in his work in fine detail, thereby showing that these patterns have universal values.”
(Liesbeth Grotenhuis, art historian)
