Hooks-Epstein Galleries presents Prince Varughese Thomas: "The Light of Other Days" opening reception
Prince Varughese Thomas’ "The Light of Other Days" is a drawing series that intersects Thomas’ interests in news and journalism with his explorations into the process of grief and mourning in private and public contexts.
Referencing print media, specifically images found in newspapers, charcoal drawings are drawn as half-tone patterns that are influenced by various tragic events, including murder, violence, migration, terrorism, and environmental tragedies that have occurred around the world. From these original press photos, Thomas has distilled, fragmented, and restructured distinct moments that express painful loss in global terms that speak toward the state of the world.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until February 16.
