Artist Talk with Autumn Thomas

January 24, 2019

Join us for an artist talk with Autumn Thomas on January 24 from 6 – 8PM. Free and open to the public. Her exhibition Undoing Structure is on display at Art Gym January 3-25, 2019.

Autumn Thomas’ series Prevails Unpoetic is a self-fulfilling prophecy; a collection of sculptures, developed through mindful dedication and a willingness to modify her original plan of action. In her artist statement she writes “These sculptures offer a dynamic view of the seemingly impossible: the bending and balancing of an assumed rigid structure. This unexpected placement and balance are the essence of survival – the impetus on which survival thrives.” In her six-month residency, Thomas’ sculptures changed from a means to house prints, into singular objects which stand as the works themselves. She uses kerf-cuts to manipulate the wood, giving her the control over a normally inflexible material. The results are beautiful evidences of transformation and change.

Autumn Thomas received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Visual Communications. She then went on to earn an MFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She also attended the Peters Valley School of Craft where she learned the kerf-cut technique she uses in her sculptures today.
