Daniels Gallery is pleased to present Recent Works by Dallas Thomas. Thomas’s work is heavily influenced by nonspecific tribal ceremonies and rituals from all over the world as well as the Bay Area Figurative Movement of the Fifties and Sixties. He experiments in wet and dry media, in both small and large scale paintings and drawings. His style is characterized by purposeful mark making and an economy of line which creates a sense of form suspended in space, a kind of portraiture that transforms and deconstructs the human figure into elements of a still life, often featuring costumes made from plants and animals. Thomas cites hip hop culture as a lifelong influence on his art and credits it for his more aggressive mark making and sense of energy.
Originally from Salisbury, North Carolina, Thomas moved to Wilmington about four years ago after studying painting at UNC-Charlotte. In addition to painting, Thomas also works as a designer for local company Freaker USA.
The gallery will hold a Fourth Friday opening reception on July 24th from 6-9pm. Admission is free and open to the public. Complimentary refreshments are provided. The Wilma W. Daniels Gallery is located in the Hanover parking deck on the campus of Cape Fear Community College. Regular gallery hours are Tuesdays-Fridays 10-5:30pm and Saturdays 12-5:30pm.
