Reynold Thomas is a Visual Artist whose work shows a perfect mix of exquisite beauty and raw strength. His art is marked by distinct colour selections and bridges abstract and figurative art to capture on canvas what transcends reality. Thomas uses the visual sensory experience of his work as a space to explore and deconstruct the female identity and body—spiritually and physically. His work is a recalling and remembrance of grace and culture coupled with an excavation of modernity through the symbol of beauty.
The theme of identity in the context of home, foundations, and roots is delicately related to and deconstructed through the body. Thomas’s work encourages us to suspend our pre-existing notions of the vulnerable and oppressed woman, engage with her power and presence, and experience the richness that she has and continually has to offer.
