When you see these paintings by artist Tobias Tovera, you may find yourself getting lost in the shifting, swirling sea of lines and shapes. The strokes of vibrant color evoke a sense of energy and the layers of pigment undulate across the panels in these complex scenes. Some of his pieces are reminiscent of distant nature landscapes. In the abstract shapes, I can almost see the ghostly silhouettes of mountain peaks, rows of trees, and seas of crashing waves.
Tovera says, “In my artwork, I am interested in discovering transmuted spaces, places where energy shifts, changes, or renews itself. Through an exploration of the interstices between opposing elements, such as nature and artifice or chaos and order, I wish to explore entropic systems where healing may occur. I want my audience to be left with question and confronted by a raw sense of what it means to be human.”
