“I am. I like to create,” is contemporary photographer Andrew Thomas whittling his creative enterprise down to one simple utterance. For an artist whose expert grasp of cutting edge technologies has allowed his images to soar to the apex of the sublime, his quintessentially Zen-like approach to creative practice makes the work feel open and uncontrived. Available as digital prints on Aluminum Substrate in Limited Editions of 25, each work marks a point on the artist’s personal journey through iconic American landscapes. Interested in the interaction of the physical and non-physical worlds, Thomas incorporates the very cutting edge of digital techniques to probe the borders of fantasy and the real, challenging “consensus reality” and the bounds of traditional photography as he takes each landscape to its virtual breaking point and beyond. Process oriented, compositionally gifted and deeply passionate about his craft, gazing into the horizon of a Thomas takes the pleasure of looking into unexpected heights.
American artist Andrew Thomas hails from Stanford, Montana and currently lives and works in Billings.
