Lex R. Thomas

" I investigate the stories of humanity via brushstrokes on canvas – but not the ones which we share with anyone outside our own minds. My portraits echo the emotions that we experience in solitude. By mixing one color at a time and layering them into human forms, creatures, and landscapes, I reveal moments of intimacy, reflection, tragedy, and grief – the human condition." Lex currently uses a realistic expressionism style in their artmaking, embracing color through acrylic paints to capture human and animal figures in botanicals and other environmental phenomena. Lex’s art has participated in public and juried exhibitions around Lafayette such as The Eye of the Beholder, 12x12 Art Spark Auction, and various galleries for Artwalk. Their upcoming shows include Assez/Enough at Basin Arts and their solo show The Human Condition at Gallery R.
