Tomie will be teaching a photo-realistic drawing workshop on January 26th. Learn more here.
Her work depicts the hidden political and social structures of the world by focusing on racism, gender and identity – those who are repressed and victimized.
She believes that the phenomena of this world is intertwined and related – like light and shadow, cause and effect – and often juxtaposes opposite images through drawing, painting, video and sculpture with electronics to create interactive installations which represent a diorama or map of a whole structure or system.
She obtained a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art.
She’s done residencies at the Atlantic Centre for the Arts as well as the Vermont Studio Centre in the USA, and the seMA NANJI Residency in Korea, and exhibits her work internationally.
