Art as Verb
Tom Cramer

Within this series, his collectors might notice a shift in style as he merges into a new era, both personally and artistically.  His work continues with strong use of color and pattern in smaller scale paintings on canvas, echoing his long interest in eastern spirituality and music, specifically jazz.  Also using wood as a medium, the exhibition will include just a few of his carved relief pieces, glowing effervescently with intricate application of gold, silver and copper leaf.  Some of the wood relief pieces are reminiscent of complex Tibetan mandalas.  Cramer, utilizes organized color, and pattern through intricate carved concentric circles to hold elements of geometry, that then in entirety become a vessel of essence and/or spirituality.
