Thomas Lumley brings Solo Exhibition to The Muse Gallery
For his latest body of work Thomas Lumley applies traditional drawing and portraiture techniques to explore the very essence of trees – exposing one in seemingly microscopic detail by using the cremated remains of another.
The resulting charcoal abstractions are profoundly simple and gently poetic and invite the viewer to explore ostensibly familiar surfaces and textures and to discover the topography of an illusive universe.
Working with a humble and ancient material, Lumley takes a snapshot of time and captures the mystery epitomised in his arboreal subjects – Evidence That Something Happpened.
