"I have always been enchanted with those who passionately and dramatically shift the scale of their gaze.  Whether that gaze looks back down on the world from above, or it is turned towards the cosmos observing, measuring, imagining space over incredible distances many times in magnitude larger than our own human experience, or if it is turned inward imagining the smallest interactions of cells, to atomic and subatomic particles where the gaze itself affects changes that nullify our position as observers. To understand how delicately balanced and nuanced enormous systems can be and how robust and powerful the smallest of actions often are is to understand the roots of our biggest challenges and opportunities as human beings.
 
I am proud to present Josh Tonies, an artist that wonders about those systems and who’s gaze shifts freely between environmental phenomena, natural and built spaces, and material transformation in order to discover the poetics of these constructions." - Curator,  Marisol Rendón
