Multidisciplinary artist, Tomi Heri, explores socio-cultural contexts by documenting events, objects, spaces, people and circumstances – the encounters in his daily life environment – translating his thoughts into a journal and rendering his ideas into digital media, sculpture and installation works.
Geometric symbolic patterns carved out of acetate sheets or stenciled onto wooden panels are some of his techniques to illustrate episodes of his life in a representational manner. Traditional motifs are then manipulated into digital media coalescing heritage with technology creating a contemporary language.
The exhibition catalogue, designed by Valenlim Studio, makes for the first use of Zloy. The aggressive angles of this recent release by Daria Petrova are a perfect match for Tomi Heri’s symbolic silhouettes. Titles are set in both English and Malay (outlined).
