Artsuite - BA Thomas - Studio Set - BA Thomas creates paintings of interiors that explore the relationship between space, time, and human experience. Her conceptually layered work encompasses ideas surrounding domesticity, psychology and the pervading and historical trope of the memento mori. However, at the heart of Thomas' painting practice is an exploration of space and perspective, which, in the process of being distorted, flattened and manipulated, begins to "break apart and behave irrationally".

BA Thomas

Greenville, NC

 

BA Thomas creates paintings of interiors that explore the relationship between space, time, and human experience. Working from the notion that the spaces we inhabit inform who we are, she studies how people use and adapt space, and how the interconnected items in a room become characters of sorts. In Thomas’ work, questions of privacy arise. The intimate becomes public, and vice versa. Source materials for her paintings are culled from online platforms, magazines, and observational drawings. These are paintings with conceptual layers, encompassing ideas surrounding domesticity, psychology and the pervading and historical trope of the memento mori.

Barbara Campbell Thomas

Greensboro, NC

Barbara Campbell Thomas's work combines painting with quilting, overlaying their material vocabularies to create complex formal dialogues within each painting that resonate with the details of her own life and the history of each medium. She came relatively late to quilting, which she learned from her mother, but quickly realized its power as an art form traditionally practiced by women to inform and expand the range of painting.

Artsuite - Ben Alper - Untitled (Metal and Shadow) - Terrain Vague is an examination of space – both physical and psychic. Taken from the term coined by Catalan architect and historian Ignasi de Sola-Morales, terrain vague sites are those that foreground the process of construction and deconstruction and underscore the ambiguous transition from one state of “being” to another.  As a result, these spaces evoke a strong sense of being in between histories, function and time.
