Thomas’ work is concerned with fragments in time, suggestions of place, floating on a ground of the past. The evocation of mood and feeling, a glimpse of a moment, a journey through a landscape strewn with shapes and colour, symbols and architecture. Facets of different horizons and views all feature in his paintings. He often travels with a sketchbook and draws the architecture around him. These drawings are then distilled and abstracted through memory and imagination into paintings.
