Sculptural artist John Fathom takes a "waste nothing" approach by using recovered wood and metal to create his illuminated painting sculptures.
The marriage of repurposed materials and original artwork evokes the creative response one would have when looking up in the clouds or at specimens under a microscope. The paintings act as snapshots into other worlds that seem familiar to us.
Common themes in Fathom's illuminated sculptural creations include reverence, honor and folklore. He allows light to envelop and expose the colors of his work.
Fathom's work has been featured in publications like New York Magazine; he has also created intricate installations at The Gallery Lounge in New York City. His latest solo show explores the veneration of godly ideals and fundamental laws that allow us our perspective.
