Thomas' Paintings in China

2012-05-10

These extremely large paintings by Thomas are now on exhibit in an urban complex called Parkview Green in Beijing, where he also designed some residential and restaurant spaces. These pieces continue the series of paintings Thomas has been doing based on tribal African currency artifacts (which account for the shapes in the paintings).  The two larger pieces are on permanent exhibit in the lobby of the office building/hotel complex. (Pretty huge, huh?) The video monitor in the wall next to the painting plays a brief documentary about Thomas and his painting process. Thomas also painted some smaller pieces that are pictured here in the studio space where his host allowed him to work. It is an honor to be featured in a space that includes some fantastic art by other artists, including original sculptures by Dali.
