tobias tovera: uncharted terrain

december 2016

During the one-month residency, Tovera created a new series of work through experimentation and map imaging, incorporating printing and mark-making using minerals, water, solvent, and fire. The images and objects result from processes of accumulation evolving out of research using Google Earth satellite mapping and explorations inspired by geological formation and topography. The paintings and sculpture in this exhibition reflect the synthesis between natural and artificial processes, the relationship between the two, and how both forms, though dissimilar, may propel each other.
