17th of June, 2pm: tour of Thomas Garnon‘s studio, Unit 1 Gallery Workshop resident.
Thomas Garnon, ‘Untitled’, 2017, Wood veneer, oil pastel, archival tape, balsa wood, glue, 25.7 cm x 20 cm.
Born 1990, Wales. Lives and works in London.
Garnon has been questioning the formal narratives in his work by making objects and drawings that demonstrate fluidity within their own visual identity. Using materials that we encounter on a daily basis, he is creating an open dialogue between the work and the viewer, a dialogue that stems from a tactile, humorous, and emotional familiarity.
