Dutch artist Thomas Trum has transformed The Hole in Los Angeles into a chromatic feast for the eyes. Based in Den Bosch, Netherlands, Trum is known for mixing analog and mechanical modes of painting to blend the abstract with the analytical.

Autobahn consists of a series of new large-scale canvas works, many of which occupy the entirety of a wall, along with smaller works on paper. Where some artists actively, and sometimes tirelessly, work to cover their tracks, Trum leaves it all out in the open. The way he achieves this effect is through unique tools, such as a giant handmade squeegee, as well as custom spraying machines.

His hybrid artworks are human still in its imperfections, but show mechanical means of production, like a tire mark from a car or the burnt stain of a dry iron. “These paintings and works on paper are interactions between human and tool, like a choreography,” noted the gallery, “applying the pigment to the surface in the best way possible. You can see the physicality in his works; a movement captured in color.”

The exhibition is currently on view in LA until February 17.
