{beautiful to me} Tobias Tovera

there’s a softness to this collection of Tobias Tovera’s work that speaks to me

While I can’t find the words I need to describe this body of work, Tobias himself explains it perfectly:

As an artist I am interested in experimenting with alchemical processes in the pursuit of discovering a “third space,” a zone of possibility that exists beyond the restrictive dualities.
My aim is to create transmuted spaces, places where energy shifts, changes, or renews itself. From the introduction of water and mineral to the use of science and the occult, this translates into working with opposing elements to reveal how they interact, transform, or propel each other.
Each layer I pour and each object I introduce is intuitive. The formal shape and material application is determined by the movement of the medium and its successive layers. The entire process choreographed as a ritual embodying the meditative state.

All I know is that I would love to be there and witness a work in progress.  To create like this would be a form of meditation unto itself.
