The art that a two year old might make if they had the technical skills and knowledge - Celestine Thomas
Colour has fascinated Thomas for as long as she can remember. She says that, when she was a child, being dyslexic meant that colour was the language she more easily identified with, rather than ABC or 123. Colour was how she used books, watched films, looked at art in galleries and generally observed the world.
Whilst studying Fine Art at Middlesex University, Thomas dived deeper into colour, experimenting with colour combinations and expanding her knowledge by researching how our perception and response to colour may differ from others.
Thomas’s current work has taken her back to her childhood. She has begun playing like a child again; using building blocks, collaging and pouring paint, with no limits or rules.
