Theodore:Art is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Jason Tomme.
Take one: Charlie writes to Charles of the “undeniable beauty” and “lingering disquiet” of the “strange kingless space” in which he finds himself. Like the damp, debris-strewn rooms at the center of Andrei Tarkovsky’s films, this uneasy place seems an illusory realm beyond the veil of appearances.
Take two: It’s good to be lonely. Really, it’s fine.
Take Three: When a loved one passes, the heart goes kablooey.
Take Four: Donald Rumsfeld hit the nail on the head when he spoke about “Known Unknowns”.
Take Five: Drawing, painting, sculpture splayed into a single room. A series of meticulous graphite drawings of potted plants, a new painting from the ongoing series “Crack Paintings”, and a myriad of new sculpture serve as wondrous artifacts to an inquisitive look at solitude, imagination, and location.
Jason Tomme was born in Las Vegas. He has a BFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and a MFA from Yale University. Tomme has been exhibiting since 2004 including exhibitions at Buia Gallery, Mary Boone, Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, the Las Vegas Art Museum, Chinati Foundation, and Socrates Sculpture Park. The artist lives and works in New York.
