Thoermer creates effervescent monotypes, ceramics, paintings and large-scale installations rooted in a 1970s knotting technique.
“I like to craft memories that speak to our tactile nature and invite us to reach out and connect – through that moment – to something beyond the familiar, comforting and disturbing at the same time.”
