About the work :

Synthesis BM is an artwork by the English artist: Tom Price. This artwork is available on commission. It will be created on the same basis as shown in the images and under the same conditions. Each piece is unique due to the creative process used.

Tom Price's artistic approach revolves around materials and is mainly led by innovative and experimental creative processes. The artist thinks of himself “as working in collaboration with materials, processes and phenomena, and that the final physical outcome is a product of mutual consent.”

In the Synthesis series, Tom Price forces resin and tar to live in the same space, experimenting with the chemical reactions through heating materials and catalysis process. As the tar fragments inserted into the resin blocks widen, they develop fissures, voids and cracks, modifying the original appearance, colour and characteristics of the resin. A new element is now created by the synthesis of the two.

Although the creative process is begun and managed by the artist, the chemical reactions are not fully controlled and the end result is unique each time, exceeding the limits of his imagination. The works of the Synthesis series are pieces of surprising beauty, intriguing and mysterious, drawing in the viewer’s admiration of the detail’s forms, the subtle colour nuances and the changing light reflections.This powerful visual impact is highlighted in some artworks, as in this case, by LED lights (via cable).

Whilst being unique, this artwork can be combined with similar pieces to create lighting installations, midway between art and design. Dimensions and price are for one piece, the price for two pieces is 9500 €. 

The artwork is lit by LED tape light (lifetime is typically around 50,000 hours). Access to the lighting is achieved by releasing grub screws in the casing and lifting the resin bar out. The lights are mounted on a tray, which is held in place with magnets and can be easily removed to change the LED tape. The Sculpture can be supplied with the cable exiting at the rear of the casing (to be passed through or chased into a wall), or at the base if the cable will be left visible (in this case it will be supplied with a fabric covered cable). The plug-in adaptor has interchangeable heads and is suitable for use in Europe, Asia, the UK and USA. The artist’s signature is on the inside of the steel casing.
