Artist to research


In two new jaw-dropping prints And I Can't Run and Blow the Man Down Thomas continues his exploration of the history and identity of African Americans while using visually stunningand innovative retro-reflective material. The images above are one viewing state of the work, you have to visit the Printshop to see them in person for the other. 

In a recent insightful interview for Artsy, Thomas details his journey developing two new bodies of work while in residence at the Printshop. Take a look here

The works are available for viewing at the Printshop and will be featured in the forthcomingEditions '14 catalogue essay by curator Micaela Giovannotti.
