Artwork

"This piece was inspired by the miracle of our lives, brought here from our ancestors' lives and survival," says Tomo. "Each square symbolizes a moment." Part of Tomo's signature series of collage work created with a technique she calls 'canvas mosaic.' Developed over the last ten years, Tomo meticulously cuts and paints pieces of canvas fabric and then individually adheres them to stretched canvas. She draws inspiration from digital pixels, but reflects on traditional mosaic making.

Tomo Mori

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.
