Mat Tomezsko
NOW III - contemporary abstract mixed media painting w/ text, letters, & words

2018

$2,000

About

Mat Tomezsko's "NOW" series of multimedia paintings are built through an elaborate process of layering, patterning, adding, and subtracting an excessive amount of acrylic, spray paint, and asphalt. Ready to hang, no framing necessary. In these heavily layered paintings, Tomezsko incorporates letters from the word “NOW” as abstract shapes that circulate among other visual elements of color, line, and texture. Re-assembling these letters into different words -- OWN and WON -- introduces new ideas into the work, demonstrating the relationships among art, language, and meaning. Tomezsko often includes elements from everyday experience into his work, such as spray paint and asphalt shingles, to maintain a sense of contemporary, urban life. This painting is signed and dated on the back. Exhibited in "CORE: Mat Tomezsko, Gregory Coates, Leora Brecher" curated by Susanna W. Gold, Ph.D. at NoBA Artspace, Bala Cynwyd, PA (2018). Tomezsko is an artist from Philadelphia who creates abstract paintings, public art installations, and community art projects based around participation and everyday visual language. His approach to composition is informed by mid-century formalism and conceptualism. His work was recognized by the 2017 Americans for the Arts Public Art Network Year in Review for outstanding public art. Tomezsko’s work has been exhibited at numerous art spaces regionally and nationally, including the Crane Arts, Woodmere Art Museum, the Center For Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA), and Wexler Gallery in Philadelphia; Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago, IL; the Delaware Contemporary in Wilmington, DE; and Thomas Hunter Projects in New York, NY. He has created several notable public art projects including "14 Movements: A Symphony in Color and Words," a mile-long temporary mural installed in downtown Philadelphia during the 2016 Democratic National Convention; "Look Long and Look Good," a series of 30 paintings currently installed along Main Street in Manayunk; and "Flowering Axes," a mural in the 5th Street Vehicular Tunnel underneath the Ben Franklin Bridge. His work is in the collection of The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania, Fox School of Business at Temple University, Capital One in Wilmington, DE; and various private collections. ***This painting is currently at exhibition and will be ready to ship in May 2021.***
