The exhibition, Biomorphic, featuring works by artist’s Tom Hill and Liza Linder, transports the viewer into surreal worlds through color, form, and surface. Both artists use organic forms that resemble elements in the natural world while having an otherworldly feel.

In Linder’s mosaic work, she isolates a range of nature specimens and life forms, scaling them up and creating embellishment with tile and glass. In her site-specific wall installations, Linder uses found or discarded metal from costume jewelry to create amorphous arrangements abundant with texture and luster.

Juxtaposed to Linder’s isolated forms, Tom Hill generates complete scenarios in which such forms live and breathe. Using acrylic paint and glazing medium, Hill builds a multilayered milieu replete with vivid color, grit, and glitter. Each painting presents a dreamlike journey of fluid and shifting movement, arcane markings, and ambiguous space that suggests both underwater and celestial experiences.
