Big and bold, Thom Hobson takes the viewer on an eerily comical voyage of love, worship, desperation and disgust. Skilfully twisting perspective, snaking lines with emotive, contrasting colours and texture, Hobson produces a canvas full of contradictions and movement. A knowing portrayal of the pitiful plight of the human condition, overlaid with acceptance, and optimistic ridicule. Free flowing, vibrant expressionism, symbolism, surrealism, all emerging from the discipline and skill of the artist. A refreshingly excellent painting from a young contemporary artist.
