Jude Thomas

Jude Thomas creates momentary opportunities for reflection and contemplation by carving out space to breathe and escape. These spaces or pauses give permission to encounter and to recognise creativity. The work reflects her sense of awe of what is beyond us, what controls us and shapes the world we live in, the space of weather, of climate, of light. Thomas recognises that instead of skimming across and through the world, we need time to observe and be responsive, somewhere to contain the chaos.

Thomas is interested in the layers of space presented by the sky, weather, light, land and thoughts. Through quiet contemplation of the physical object (the natural environment), she understands that nature offers us a sense of release yet also confronts us with challenge, friction and a sense of the unknown.
