A SOLO EXHIBITION BY TOM SONNENBERG

Opening Reception June 1 4-7pm

 

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

After experiencing the wear and tear of teaching art for many years, Tom Sonnenberg created Sawdust and Eggshells to come to terms with his own aging body. The solo show features over 50 pieces of work, including prints, created from 2020 to the present. By using deconstructed materials, such as eggshells and sawdust, Sonnenberg creates new forms, calling it the “Humpty-Dumpty effect”.

Sawdust and Eggshells meditates on wellness and wholeness by metaphorically reconstructing parts of Sonnenberg’s body. During the quiet of the pandemic, the artist’s ideas of physical and spiritual reconstruction evolved into depictions of expressive figures. He then transformed the figures into images of the physical locations of his pain.
