Creation converts itself into a mysterious act, with a hidden meaning. And in these works we find all the ingredients that belong to the world of mystery. Tom Block achieves this by breaking the known form of the painting support, choosing instead to work on known objects rendered 'impossible.' Ultimately, Block's work tells us that the totality of the mundane objects that surround us are not in any way mundane, but are passages to a conversation with the eternal. His work has moved far from an injustifiable loyalty to the banal, searching, instead, for the particular mystery in each corporeal moment.
