Tomm El-Saieh: Imaginary City at The Clark

Tomm El-Saieh: Imaginary City opens at The Clark, Saturday, Jan. 29

Opens Saturday, Jan. 29
Museum admission free in January

The large-format, abstract paintings of Tomm El-Saieh who was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and now lives and works in Miami, teem with dense and dynamic marks that evoke ornament, language, and architecture. By variously layering and erasing his linework, and using vibrant color to optically push or pull his pictures, El-Saieh creates rhythmic, all-over compositions from which larger forms appear to emerge. The exhibition title, which comes from one of the works in the show, refers to a cityscape theme common in Haitian art (Vilaj Imaginé).
