Tom Bolin

[BFA] Painting

I find deep satisfaction from the perfection of geometric forms and sinuous lines. These paintings explore hard-edge abstraction as well as biomorphic forms through the combination of years (1992, 2011, etc.) on a field of camouflage. I hope to combine the ambiguity of times and years gives with the shear joy of color and line.
