Lex Thomas


From recent investigations into magico-religious practices and spaceship cults Lex Thomas continues to create meditations on the human condition. Describing the natural world and man’s place within it Thomas explores the fictions man has created in order to deal with his existential predicament. It is this latest survey of realities and illusions that have led Thomas to enquire further into the mysteries of the human psyche.

An investigation into the construction of the image is portrayed with collaging and references to photography. The small oil paintings on gesso panels in deep rich tones and glazes suggest an intimately mysterious atmosphere and otherworldly timelessness. Searching through the unknown and intangible metaphysical world and delving into unexplained natural phenomena such as the supernatural and paranormal Thomas attempts to take us to an inner space of the soul.
