I’ve been very inspired by On the Nature of Daylight, a piece of music by @maxrichtermusic a lot with these new paintings, they are in an Exhibition I currently have up as part of @artwavefestival here in my home town of Lewes, East Sussex.
Ive been wanting to create beacons, almost in an astral or cosmic sense, guiding lights out of or within the darkness that seems to be thrust upon us constantly by the current giant corporations of social media and mainstream news.
I’ve been lucky to see Max Richter play live a few times and it is truly incredible, there is a quote from him that resonates a lot with me, its about making music to create a place to think. I took inspiration from that and within these paintings wanted to create a place for the mind to rest and look forward towards these points of light, lighthouses if you will, as positive forces of nature like the sun.
Thomas Hooper – Light on the Horizon Netwerks 4 Fisher Street 10 am – 3pm September 3-18th. Artwave stop 112
