Dave Thomas

Painting

My work is about the process, the materials, the activity, the dance, the surprise at the end, the energy it gives me to make the next. I have chosen to stay within the formal realm of painting, drawing and mark-making on a surface, always willing to experiment with new materials to discover something new for my work. I’m committed to abstraction and have a goal to keep it alive. I’m never satisfied, but continually attempting to make “The Next Painting.” My work is about what I see … then digest and put down in a very immediate way, the more off-hand the better: the sky, the land, the cities I visit, events that take place, images I take notice of. www.davethomasart.com
