Tommy Zen presents a series of dazzling works whose contours and lines evoke a distant past, like the ethereal silhouettes of archaeological remains, beholders of early civilisations. Some appear to represent the strong and stout heart of an active volcano, while others convey imperial vigils, solemnly guarding.
Through a process of creation resulting from a long reflective approach, the techniques developed by Zen require several hand-executed steps for every piece. The artist adorns his works with silver, copper or bronze. By virtue of its form, its shades and its texture, each piece is entirely unique.
With remarkable intensity, the works embody the spirit of our time: decidedly postmodern, they emerge through the eyes of an innovative artist inspired by a global culture that transcends space and time.
