Artist Focus
July 28, 2020

Jon Thomas is an artist & sculptor based in Swansea, South Wales (UK). He constructs free standing and wall based three dimensional sculptures using a combination of contemporary and traditional materials from casting with plaster of Paris to thermoforming with industrial materials including acrylic sheet & EPS (polystyrene). John’s latest sculptures are constructed using a spontaneous substractive process of hand cutting dozens of geometrical shapes, stacking, balancing and finally glueing the individual forms to wooden boards before painting them. This recent, freer body of work reaches beyond some of his purer earlier examples, leaning more towards process art than pure minimalism.
