Salvation, 2012 Earnest Thomas

Form/Space Atelier Program For May 10-June 8, 2013

Exhibit Title: Abstract Works In 3-D

Exhibit Duration: May 10-June 8, 2013

Vernissage: May 10, 2013 6PM

     Earnest Thomas exhibits his first solo exhibit of artwork at Form/Space Atelier, which pulls from his deep expertise in creative expression using a considerable variety of materials and techniques.  Earnest Thomas is collected and exhibited widely in the region and was the People's Choice Award Winner at the 2009 Northwest African American Fine Arts Exhibit.

Earnest Thomas describes his approach to art: 

     My passion for art is fueled by a background in design engineering, plus 27 years making jewelry, where color, size, texture and shape are significant to successful design. My work is often informed by found objects of metal. The majority of my creations are best described as abstract mixed media with a sculptural and industrial flair. My work utilizes acrylic paint on board and often incorporates aluminum, copper, brass, polished alloy wire, rod, sheet metal or metal plate as an additional dimension. The additional dimension created by the metal adds interplay between what I call the outside and inside of the work through shadow, texture and color.     I have displayed my work in Seattle, eastern Washington and Portland area exhibitions and galleries and continue to be encouraged by the viewing audience.
     Artistic expression is infinite, with new approaches being defined daily. The creative envelope, in my view, must continue to be refreshed. Hopefully my art does that. -Earnest Thomas
