A few weeks ago AM got a chance to visit with artist Tessar Lo at his Toronto studio. He was just coming off of recent group shows More Than Two (Let It Make Itself) at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto and Buddy System at the Breeze Block Gallery in Portland.
Tessar’s process involves tapping into the unconscious, creating imagery that feels poignant despite its abstraction, using color and shape to convey unspoken meaning but maintaining a haunting familiarity. He challenges the viewer to digest the work without having something tangible to cling to. Below are some shots from his studio while he was busy preparing for his February 2014 solo show at The Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto.
