Moving Sculptures” by Thomas is a collection of 3D sculptures created around a style of kinetic art called Op Art, which creates an optical illusion of movement. As you walk up to the seemingly flat sculptures, they loom and create a disorienting, “moving” experience. Thomas believes that every “moving sculpture” should be seen as a unique statement and should be judged solely on its visual effect. His work is defined by his manipulation of perspective and our spatial perceptions.
He starts by designing a geometric shape that interprets his creative vision for each theme. He then creates each unique handmade sculpture by handcrafting first and assembling the three-dimensional shape by hand from wood. Different creative art techniques and media are then applied by hand to each individual sculpture to create extraordinary optical illusions that present new visual experiences. Thomas is one of the few artists in the world who has mastered this unique technique.
