It’s good to be lonely: Jason Tomme at Theodore:Art

Stephanie Theodore gets the prize for press release of the day for her five deceptively simple takes on Jason Tomme’s exhibition. The show is a compelling mix of different media, from wood and stone sculptures and found objects to finely detailed pencil drawings, which I can imagine the artist making alone, in his studio, contemplating … read more… “It’s good to be lonely: Jason Tomme at Theodore:Art”

And perhaps you’re wondering about the exhibitions that are opening in January.
