The drawings and sculpture of Flushing, Michigan artist Thom Bohnert range from lyrical to poetic, playing with tension and balance in a kind of whimsical theatrical arena.

Bohnert’s drawings show a complex layering, allowing viewers to imagine a storytelling encounter of spaces. His ceramics and sculptures are compositions often combining wire armature and wet looking clay fragments with colorful multi-glazed surfaces.

Bohnert is the recipient of awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, among others, and museum collections include Minneapolis Art Institute and Detroit Institute of the Arts.
