Tonmoy Khan: EVERYTHING
Opening Saturday, January 14th | 6-9 pm
On view through March 4th, 2023
Tierra del Sol Gallery presents Tonmoy Khan: Everything, Khan’s first solo exhibition. Everything embodies Khan’s feelings, his practice and his commitment to making visual language. He uses various media to illustrate his flora and fauna inspired images, including pencil, oil pastels and markers, the combination of these creates vibrant color, texture and depth. His work tells important stories of how he sees and interprets the world around him.
Khan immigrated from Bangladesh in 2011 and joined Tierra’s Studio Art Program in 2019. Khan uses tape to delineate rich geometric watercolor patterns that frame subjects including elaborately potted plants and other still life. Everything also includes surreal imagery depicting hands, flowers, insects, Pokemon and everything in between. Khan implores what he calls his “Secret Imagination” to work through both the stress of living so far from home and the pleasure in his deep connections to his friends, family and ideas that are often expressed in his surrealist works.
Please join us and the artist in celebration of this exciting body of work,
January 14, 6-9pm at the gallery in Chinatown, Los Angeles.
Everyone is welcome!
Ericka Lopez and Tierra del Sol invite you to please touch. The tactile nature of Ericka’s artwork is a fundamental aspect of her own exploration and expertise of materials. Ericka is blind and works entirely by feeling, she wants people to engage with her work in the same way she does.
Visit the gallery Wednesday-Saturday, noon-6pm to gently feel all of the objects in Continuous Touch to experience textures and shapes that connect to Ericka’s world.
All Tierra families get a discounted admission fee of $15 (regularly $40) for the 2:00 pm sensory performance.
When a loose moose wanders into town holding a Molson Canadian beer and gets stuck in the Polish neighbor’s camper trailer, four generations of an Italian/Canadian immigrant family from Calabria in Southern Italy soon realize the moose isn’t the only one who is stuck, displaced, and confused.
