Built on the idea of transformation, these abstract contemporary architectural landscapes have a special and grand scale essence, yet the irony is that they are created from everyday encounters with subway handles, AYTM machines, fire hydrants, construction sites, antique door knobs, sidewalk grates, security fences, and many other mundane details of everyday street life.
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.
