ABOUT THE ARTIST: TOMAS LOEWY
Tomas Loewy was born in Prague and grew up in Buenos Aires, Munich, New York. Moving to South Florida gave him the vision of Miami's optimism and creativity enhancing sunshine, shooting for body and soul. Based on his international background with previous ventures in journalism, television, film and the online world, Tomas chose photography, molding his images with a love for moments, situations, time lapse, detail and human emotions. Part of Tomas Loewýs photography comes from the refusal to be content with the comfortable life most people lead. Comfortable not in a material sense, but most of us get (too) comfortable in the knowledge that basic needs are satisfied. As a consequence people strive to avoid ruptures in their biographies for the sake of that one paralyzing notion, stability.
Sometimes stability is good, sometimes not. The right combination of stability and the lack thereof is a personal choice. On an artistic level it hen becomes intuition or possibly talent.
Tomas seems to always look for a way not to be too comfortable, rather to find new challenges, new endeavors - and master them. The challenge now is art in its many aspects. Photography and video installations being a tool to express emotions and
impact other lives, even a little, by showing facets of life, which the viewer would not have encountered without seeing these photographs. In 2011 his first book 'Radical Burning Desert - Burning Man Photography 2004-2010' was published.
