See what Thomas has to say about BIRTHDAY SUIT below~
“There are ways that people suit and address themselves that change over time. Experiences and relationships change a person’s perspective about themselves and the world year by year. Birthdays can be uncomfortable. They act as poignant milestones from which to compare one’s old and new selves at each new year. They serve as a time to address one’s expectations of the year ahead. These works are a reflection of that dynamic struggle” -- TJC
About the Artist
Through bold use of color and surreal imagery, Thomas Carlson aims to evoke a vivid dream world where our senses are limited. Memories and subconscious material are surfaced without the tools of the awakened mind’s faculties. Images and narratives are beyond the real world. Meaning is suggested but is not clear to either the beholder or even the imaginer. Thomas is also the founder and director of Jersey City Art School.
Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday at this very special solo show and birthday celebration!
