GILLY THOMAS RCA

"To me the act of making paintings and the images themselves must have a reason for themselves, a meaning. Ironically, meaning is elusive and may be entirely non-existent in an irrational universe.

I try to concoct an image that begins to hold within it a kind of distilled version of what bothers me in a world full of the strangely significant and the tyrannical dominance of the mundane.

It’s an absurd activity, but it gives me what I might describe as a burst of sanity when I nail the feeling.Then I can start in a codified way to penetrate my own mysteries, which I suppose belong to everyone."
