Tom & Lois White, ‘fire/works: series, #17’, 2005-2017, Exhibit No. 9

About Tom & Lois White

Photography duo ToLo, comprised of Tom and Lois White, explore the vagaries of light and color in abstract, multiple exposure images. Experimenting with light sources at varying times of day and in a range of locations, ToLo’s work examines how the human eye perceives luminosity. In the “roadway/conversations” series, traffic lamps and neon signs found along roadsides are blurred and obscured through ToLo’s lens. The utilitarian lights shape-shift into forms that resemble brush strokes, geysers, and other explosive elements that evoke motion and metamorphosis. Explosives themselves are captured in ToLo’s “fire/works” series, where chromatically vibrant, incandescent images evoke the wonder and drama induced by fireworks displays.
