Jaan Tomik, "Landscape with Chimneys", 2017, acrylic, canvas, 110 x 265 cm
On February 14th, Jaan Toomik will open his solo exhibition "Gesture Theater" at Mūkusala Art Salon, Riga, Latvia.
Jaan Toomik's paintings and videos continue the artist’s interest in investigating the human body and its limitations and boundaries. Toomik takes the subject in both a physical sense as well as treating the metaphysical, spiritual aspects of our entity. To what extent are these limitations and boundaries subject to the environments in which we find ourselves and how far can they be pushed when confronted with extraordinary situations? The results may range from the tragic to the bizarre and comic.
The exhibition is curated by Andris Brinkmanis and will stay on view from 15 February to 12 April in the Grand Hall of the Mukusalas Art Salon.
