"For me, balance is everything. On the one hand, I break things down mathematically and calculate beauty; on the other, I let chance and coincidence challenge me to evolve."
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 mathematical 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.
