James Thomas

Capturing movement in stillness

United States

“My work is an exploration of form as well as new techniques and colors, combinations and abstraction. What emerges are fluid shapes that appear to be in motion and/or evolution: intimate and honest but never fully revealed.”

It could be said that James Thomas paints with scissors. Capturing the essence of movement is paramount for Thomas, who draws on two decades of experience designing women’s wear for Calvin Klein, and as a Creative Director for a number of fashion brands.

James expanded his expressive modern sensibility and his trademark cut paper works to art and illustration, and his artwork has since been featured in several publications and exhibitions.
