David Thomas states: ‘I have, for over twelve years, made works that approach the idea of the individual and its disintegration, through text, paint, audio, video and my own body. I have had many ideas and tried numerous different ways of making a work that may or may not appear as a representation of myself. Indeed, this particular show could eventually look like a group show about the idea of self-portraiture. Through this exhibition I hope to document a serious and yet playful approach to portraying myself, and [hope] that the works trigger thought and discussion about art and its making.’
A substantial cross-section of David Thomas’s self-portrait works are shown together in this exhibition for the first time.
