Opening Reception & Artist Talk:
UNCW CULTURAL ARTS GALLERY
Christopher Thomas experiments with various techniques to meld visual cues of high technology with abstract painting. His works often refer to landscape and incorporate handmade marks that recall the pixels of a computer generated image or inkjet impressions on a printed page.
He lives in Climax, North Carolina and is the Studio Foundations Coordinator in the Art Department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
