Event Details

Please join us on September 16th, for a reception to celebrate the exhibition of collage work and glass painting installation by Tomo Mori on display at the Wix Lounge throughout September.

Complimentary snacks and drinks will be served. Sponsored by Wix!

recent canvas-on-canvas collage work

My work represents the memories of feelings, composed of thousands of small elements coexisting like cell structures in living organisms. There are infinite reasons why we feel what we feel, just as there are infinite colors derived in the spectrum of light. By randomly composing these colors, I attempt to represent an introspective vision. I am constantly searching for the colors and color combinations to explore the unlimited variables of feeling and thought.


This concept was originally inspired by the digital images created by thousands of tiny pixels. After some experiments with different mediums, I arrived at canvas-on-canvas collages utilizing the traditional technique of mosaic. More recently, the concept is being developed into site-specific glass wall installation projects as well. My process is extremely meticulous yet spontaneous in its execution, allowing natural instinct to guide the creativity and momentum of the work.

glass wall installation + integrative dance performance

The Wix Lounge, will be transformed through paint and dance on September 16th, 6-9pm. For her September exhibition in the Wix Lounge, artist Tomo Mori will cover the space’s 300 square feet glass conference room in an array of colorful painted dots meant to convey a range of emotions. Dancer Kyla Ernst-Alper will then map these emotions through an integrative dance performance in the space.

Costume design by fashion designer Alisha Trimble.

Kyla Ernst-Alper (Under One Dances) will ber performing inside of the glass wall installation. Don't miss this one time collaboration of art + dance.
