David Thomas

 
Fine art (painting) at Cheltenham
Cardiff (BA)–1981-88
Leeds Metropolitan University (MA)- 1991-3

David AP Thomas makes paintings and drawings about things on tables, horizons, land and sky, but mostly about the fluid process of painting.

 
David Thomas studied fine art painting at Cheltenham, Cardiff and Leeds and has painted continuously since leaving Cardiff in 1989.The paintings are in oil paint on board, panel or canvas. Most are still-lifes, observed from the object(s) in front of him. They start with a long process of drawing and re-arrangement. Continuous and observational drawing is a central activity in David Thomas’ practice.Objects are arranged and moved throughout the process, culminating in paintings that are, at the same time, a record of the activity of looking and an interaction between visual experience, the material and the illusionary space within and beyond the picture surface.
 
 
David also paints a small number of landscapes and interiors, working from drawings and found photographs. He also makes some non-representational /abstract /formal pieces, which he has never exhibited but they do occasionally show up in the background of still-life paintings.
