This is an earlier work from my canvas on canvas collage series and very special piece. "Burning" and red symbolize more of an emotional state like passion than mountains actually burning. The canvas fabrics were cut chunky, and a little bit of roughness makes this piece unique. I developed a technique of canvas-on-canvas collage utilizing traditional mosaic making. My process is extremely meticulous yet spontaneous in its execution, allowing natural instinct to guide the creativity and momentum of the work. I cut many small pieces of canvas, paint them with acrylic paint, and adhere them to the canvas with tweezers and gel medium. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Tomo

Tomo Mori finds herself drawn to images that are melting, dripping, streaming and flowing. Her process is extremely meticulous yet spontaneous in its execution, allowing natural instinct to guide the creativity and fluidity of the work. Tomo’s signature technique is collage made of canvas on canvas, a style that adds depth and dimension to her work. When she’s not making art, Tomo likes spending time with her family (and dancing!). Fun fact: When Tomo was in kindergarten, she used to hide under a table and draw when they were supposed go outside and play.
