FOCUS: Fred Tomaselli
LocationModern Art Museum of Fort Worth
In a word, Fred Tomaselli's paintings are hypnotizing. Layers of paint, photo-collage, and resin merge into psychedelic patterns and allegorical figures that slowly pull the viewer into the work. Through a mesmerizing series of compositions that blur the boundaries of reality and artifice, Tomaselli comments on societal mechanisms that pervaded suburban America throughout the `60s and `70s.
