Animation and print, 2020
Thomas’ animation and visual work for Tail of The Pup springs from a proposed collaboration and subsequent dialogue between himself and London based artist Dominic Allan. The conversation and the work finally presented here extends to thinking about such things as: the “effect of digital technology on our lived experience”, the true immediate value of face to face to communication as opposed to a form that is sequential and reactive (therefore prone to misinterpretation and sometimes requiring the need for redaction), and the significance of an art practice that is embedded in and continuous with the culture and community it emanates from.
– Mark Pearson, Tail of the Pup
Tail of the Pup is a d.i.y artists’ project space based in the outer boroughs of East London. Broadcasting from a converted shed that has a sleek and designed exterior that deliberately contrasts with its ramshackle and bricolaged interior.
