My work is appearing at Las Laguna Gallery in Laguna Beach, California for the first time. Thanks to the three great artists appearing in this piece which is part of my “In The Clouds” collection. This piece will be on display in the gallery as part of the “Stunning” show through December 28th. More pieces like this can be found at my website.
While wandered through Jing’an Sculpture Park in Shanghai many of the sculptures only revealed themselves after a bit of exploring. Better than finding something tucked away was that a few told completely different stories as my perspective changed during my hike.
Here are a few photographs from last month’s opening night party celebrating the project I’ve been working on for over two years. Thank you to everyone who made it out and made it possible.
Exposure Fine Art Gallery & Studio is hosting an exhibit of Tom Suhler’s art created from an evolving production that’s been going on for over two years. This production started as an exploration of what it would be like to live in clouds and morphed into ideas inspired by Greek philosophers and particle physics.
The exhibit explores the evolving nature of his work, its motivations, and the production which was first envisioned almost 10 years ago.
Suhler collaborates with members of Austin’s elite dance community as the dancers assume character roles in his single-image narratives.
“Dancers are great artists to work with in creating still narratives,” Suhler said. “In dance, they portray characters while expressing ideas and emotions through movement and form — that’s exactly what we are striving for.”
All the photographs are created on set without the use of Photoshop or other digital manipulation software.
This will be the final show in Exposure Fine Art Gallery & Studio at its current location. Come help us celebrate as we move from our home for the last 7 years. Exposure will be relocating to a yet to be determined location.
This event is open to the public.

Here are a few photographs from last week’s work. I was thinking about the Greek philosopher Diogenes when I created the starting point for the day’s work. My 8th grade algebra teacher introduced him to me by recounting one of his stunts. From time to time, Diogenes apparently carried a lit lamp during the day looking for an honest person. All images were created on set, no digital manipulation required.
First Looks are my initial reactions. It usually takes days or weeks before I’m comfortable deciding if something makes the cut. Editing, selecting which pieces make it and which ones don’t, is one of the most difficult parts of the process. The images you see here are either ones that might be finished or inspire ideas worth pursuing.
