Thomas Williams

As an abstract painter, Thomas Williams works on individual canvases as well as painting installations. The inspiration for the painting process is to create biomorphic forms. Biomorphic forms which interest the work are wood grains, marble and lava. Thomas will be directly engaging with PAD’s space resulting in a dynamic installation. Thomas will create a painting on site and will react with the area in which it is set. The process involves layering, mixing media, dripping and movement introducing chance into his practice. As the whole installed painting cannot be viewed from just one angle, the concern is to play with the viewer’s single point perspective, the illusion of space in which the work is placed. Thomas Williams has recently completed his MA in Contemporary Fine Art at Salford University and has shown in Manchester, Sunderland and Chester.
