From Bluestem Art Editor, Alan Pocaro:

Tom Pekovitch’s work seems made for the digital age. Like the backlit screens and mobile devices they obliquely reference, their intimate surfaces are boldly colored and ever-changing; geometric forms snaking their way across empty pages. Though they demand our attention, they’re more a call to contemplation than reason for distraction. Pay attention to their subtlety and nuance.

As Tom says: “My art is an investigation of the mind’s interior. It explores how we take in information and how it is translated into a form of language that we can digest. We are constantly absorbing endless amounts of various stimuli from our five senses; a lot which gets filtered out subconsciously. These bits of data create an infinite amount of moments through different colors, patterns, gestalts, semiotic indicators, etc. My work tries to capture this quality; taking cues from music, hieroglyphics, and other linguistic structures.”
