I'm Not Talking... I'm Just Saying

August 28 - September 14, 2010

Thomas' unique language of ovals, swipes and dots seems to remain suspended not only within the pictorial space, but also in time. Through the rhythmic layering of fluid acrylics and Thomas' successful endeavour to distil experience, thought and sensation, the viewer is left with an intimate space to trace, meander through, and endlessly explore.
