Aloxite by Tobias Tovera

Tobias Tovera’s latest work is similar in concept to previous series, but this time the pigments are applied to iron for an exotically earthy effect. Tobias explains his process: “I combine pigment, solvent, and mineral which I pour onto mahogany panels treated with Iron oxide. I pour horizontally to create pools of entropic verdigris that transmute and diffuse into the surface. Based on evaporation different patterns of crystallization, oxidation and erosion develop and accumulate. Each layer takes up to one day

to dry. The amount of layers applied is intuitive and the formal shape and chemical application is determined by the movement of the medium and its successive layers.”
