"My artistry is a constant interplay between chaos and harmony. The beauty lies in the balance between those contrasting forces."
The expressionistic artistry by Tomas Hammar is based on an effort to achieve balance and to find beauty in the contrasting forces chaos and harmony. The color transitions and denominations are diverse, in some parts they are sharply contrasted, and then emerge into soft subtle shifts.
The creative process is an interplay between accuracy and intuitive impulses which give each artwork its characteristic expression. It is in these abstract breakpoints, through the interaction between harmony and chaos, that the artist’s creativity and ability flourish and affect.
