Tomaselli’s high-octane paintings offer a dazzling display of cut-outs from fashion magazines, medical texts and ornithological guide books and layers them with plants, pills and paints. Encased in high-gloss resin, Tomaselli’s conflations of hi-low cultural references radiate an intense optical overload. In the current body of work, Tomaselli draws in to examine the flora and fauna that inhabit his landscapes. The profusion of images has the effect of altering the world as we know it and creating a new ecstatic reality in its place.
The exhibition is comprised of 5 large-scale works and a group of small portraits.
