Gspot Gallery presents Thomas Walsh: The Unfamiliar Norm opening reception

Photo by Thomas Walsh

The paintings of Thomas Walsh are abstractions of the world he inhabits. The painted images are derived from photographs he took in recent years of rock formations in Narita, Japan.  Intrigued by the exercise of thwarting the familiar,  earth-tones were exchanged for flesh-tones and he began using reflective objects to distort images of everyday vistas and environments. Thomas thinks of these selected images as micro-cosmoses of the world he occupies, at times familiar, but often wholly alien due to even the most minute of distortions to an otherwise familiar set imagery.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 31.
