Gwennan Thomas

Job Title: 





My practice is studio-based and process driven, working primarily with painting which sits somewhere between abstraction and figuration. The work explores fluidity in the context of memory, bicultural identity and language. I paint on a variety of surfaces; wood, calico, satin, polyester, cotton duck and often make my own paints, building a body of research on materiality and the tactile. I am interested in showing works in alternative formats and often play with how works are shown, hung or grouped together. The paintings have a strong focus on colour and use framing mechanisms and repetitive motifs derived from film scenes, the built environment, collected objects and Celtic mythology.
