Reynold Thomas is Visual Artist who has been perfecting his craft for over a decade. Thomas’s 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 black female identity and body—spiritually and physically. His work is a recalling and remembrance of the grace of black women before, coupled with an excavation of the modern black woman through the symbol of her beauty.
“Our first home is the womb and from there everything comes. The theme of identity in the context of home, foundations, and roots is delicately related to and deconstructed through the body of the black woman.
In a world where society has been consciously and systematically blinded to the presence and power of the black woman, Thomas’s work encourages us to suspend our pre-existing notions of the black woman, engage with her power and presence, and experience the richness that she has and continually has to offer.”
