The Oculus series captures the beauty found in everyday common elements. The image is reworked so that we can perceive and appreciate the colours, vibrancy, textures, patterns and symmetry. Thomas has shaped the surreal out of the real, making interpretation and perception the subjects of the image and not the actual still life or landscape source. Inconspicuous details become a singularity of beauty and truth in the eye of the beholder. Each piece is a self-reflection into the definition of our own personal aesthetics.
