ABOUT THE ARTIST
Tom Holmes is an artist, sculptor and musician living and working in the NEPA valley. “I am drawn to working in the six elements of stone, metal, wood, light, ice and water. It gives me the ability to work intuitively. All possibilities can exist briefly before I impose parameters with regard to my emotional and intellectual contexts.” The undercurrents of natural decay,unity, duality,symmetry, space, time and dimension are at the heart of Tom’s creative energy.
“I work seasonally, tracking the weather. Different temperatures demand independent responses to materials and approaches. “Ice follows the freezing mark of winter, stone and steel the exterior work space of summer. Spring begins the search for materials and fall settles all debts, emotional, physical and intellectual. “
My work is my life and I thrive on long days. There is only the transcendence of the everyday. Cooking, friends, love becomes the sublime witness of doing. Process for me is the essence of my day.
