AM Thomas Paintings
PLEAST NOTE - I can only ship within the UK at the present time but please message me directly if you would like to discuss International Shipping options.
With a background in Architecture/Construction I’ve spent what feels like a lifetime drawing straight lines (at first by hand and later by computer) in an industry guided by rules and regulations. Don’t get me wrong, I’m the sort of personality that responds well to limitations and boundaries; I like the clarity they bring but, for me, painting in an abstract way gives me permission to imagine; to break free and express myself.
I use elements of nature as the basis for my abstraction, usually in the form of a photograph I’ve taken while out and about but I’m quick to discard it once the initial layers are down...this is when the work really starts.
Texture is a central theme in my work and sometimes it feels like the paint I take off is more important than the paint I put on. This practice takes several layers to satisfy me and I also love it when mediums react with and resist each other.
I’m intrigued to think that today I may be creating a painting for someone I just haven’t met yet...
I’d prefer you spent your time viewing my paintings (or the other fantastic work on this Portal) instead of reading this blurb that is my Bio but if you have any questions about my work, process, a particular painting etc, please don’t hesitate in contacting me directly.
It’s a much nicer way to get to know each other!
