Toms Valmiers “Wooden Cryptography”
The permeable summary of the exhibition is the material from which the works are made of. For an artist, the relationship with a tree is like that of his ancient ancestor, who does not stop showing the various forms of life. As a result, it makes the thematic background of the works slightly existential.
Most of the sculptures were created during Toms Valmiers study years, however, four will be new works created during the pandemic.
Toms Valmiers graduated from the Art Academy of Latvia in 2019 and obtained a Master’s degree in sculpture. In 2018, in Jēkabpils, in the territory of Mežaparks, his sculpture “Pine Morning” was unveiled, he was also one of the authors in the exhibition “Student Diaries. Sculptors” of the art station “Dubulti”.
