ELEMENTAL – TOBIAS TOVERA – SLATE CONTEMPORARY

April 15 - May 28

SLATE Contemporary is pleased to present ELEMENTAL, a solo exhibition of works by Tobias Tovera. The paintings, sculpture, and soundscape in this show investigate deep time creation and the primordial formations of living matter.  The elemental power of nature is thematic and speaks to the connection between the physical and metaphysical realms, through which new forms are created. Each layer and each new substance that is introduced, is part of an intuitive movement between the artist and the materials themselves: a performative ritual that embodies the meditative state.

About the Artist
Tobias Tovera was born in Sacramento, California and studied at the California College of the Arts and the San Francisco Art Institute. His work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in the United States, Asia and Europe, and is part of numerous private, public, and corporate collections. During the course of his career, Tovera has developed two bodies of work in painting and a series of sculptures. His new work investigates the interplay between his paintings and his sculptures and how they inform each other. Tobias lives and works on the Mojave Desert, in Yucca Valley, California, and is the founder of the Ark Project, an international artist residency program. He has been awarded residencies at Lucid Art Foundation, Root Division, and Local Language Art, and has been published in American Artwork, Studio Journal Knock, Studio Visit, and Art Voices Magazine.
