This is a piece in a series called Memory Ring. In Tomo Mori's signature style, painted canvas pieces are cut and pasted by hand, one by one. Flower petal-like shapes represent moments and emotions and become full circle together. She represents memories as being alive with subtle movements and relates her collages to electrons as in all living organisms of the universe. Of the color blue, the artist explains, "I have days that I seek the color blue to clear my mind and reset myself."
New York, New York
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. Born in Osaka, Japan, her family moved to Tokyo when she was four, where she recalls happy family memories under the cherry blossoms. She is now based in New York, and when she's not making art, Tomo likes spending time with her family and dancing.
