‘Colour­ing Im­per­ma­nence’ oc­cu­pies two in­ter-con­nected yet dis­tinct spa­ces re­flect­ing dif­fer­ent pe­ri­ods in artist David Thomas’ ca­reer com­pris­ing 100 works from early fig­u­ra­tive and ab­stract draw­ings to re­cent large-scale mono­chrome paint­ings and an im­mer­sive in­stal­la­tion piece along­side works by peers, as well as col­lab­o­ra­tive projects.

These works high­light the value of paint­ing and idea of em­pa­thetic view­ing; “The works en­able the viewer to un­der­stand the move­ment of mean­ing over time and to con­tem­plate the tran­si­tory, un­sta­ble na­ture of be­ing and per­ceiv­ing”, says Thomas.
