Tom Cramer: Under the Sun

Augen Gallery, Portland, OR - Nov 2-Dec 2

by Allyn Cantor

In his labor-intensive wood-carved reliefs, well-known Portland artist Tom Cramer demonstrates a close reverence for nature – his hyper-organic forms pay homage not only to the natural world, but also to the cosmic domain. In this new body of work Cramer moves away from industrialized forms and gestures, rather the intricacy presented though his meticulous carvings of fractal-like patterning with gilded surfaces point to a spiritual realm that recalls the intangible and infinite nature of reality.
