Amir Tomashov - Architecture, drawing

Amir Tomashov recently completed his architectural studies at the Technion Institute with an urban-literary project. Confirming his artistic choice, he presents a first solo exhibition, where models, collages and drawings create an utopian spatial phantasmagoria of extreme tension and speed.

The works of Tomashov, writes Yaacov Chefetz, "seem to start at the end of a process of destruction, of unrestricted confusion, with no clear rules, where up and down and the built logical order have disappeared, where the gravity force has moved away from all things". Indeed, Tomashov's ideal cities are far from being romantic; they throw us, naked, into a galactic cosmos of never-ending wandering, where ruined bits and pieces of cities and buildings do not offer any place to rest. Here, Utopia meets Apocalypse - but Tomashov's technique is sharp and poetic, merging high-tech, architecture and craft into dreamy objects of art.
