Tom Mills retrospective
A retrospective of Tom Mills’ (Professor, Foundation Studies) work was on view at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery in Fort Myers, Florida, January 8-February 13, 2010. The gallery published a handsome companion catalog to the exhibit.
“Shapes materialize as if through a process of geological accretion and erosion, with old marks erased to make room for new ones on what become heavily abraded surfaces. The images are generally dark dream spaces with forms dissolving into amorphous browns and blacks. Occasionally, mists of acrid hues waft by or bright light shines in through a chink. In his damp and silent places, weird fauna and flora appear, of unusual shapes and colors. – From Art in America, by Michael Amy
