Just a few days remain to see an exhibition of the extraordinary works of artist Fred Tomaselli at the Toledo Museum of Art.
Keep Looking: Fred Tomaselli’s Birds, a focus exhibition on view in Gallery 6, will close on Aug. 7, 2016. Five painting/collages, a tapestry, two studies and four of his “Field Guide” works are featured in the show, which opened to the public on April 29.
Tomaselli, who lives and works in New York City, added bird-related imagery to his body of work in the 1990s. He uses natural materials, such as leaves and seeds, and images of birds, insects and flowers cut from nature guides as well as painted patterns in his signature works, which are then encased in layers of resin.
“He constructs his work around the tension between real, photographic and painterly images that invites us to see beyond the ordinary – to ‘look and keep looking’,” noted exhibition curator Paula Reich, interpretive projects and managing editor at TMA.
Admission to the exhibition and to the Museum is free.
