‘Green Timbers Tunnel with Dog’


‘Green Timbers Tunnel with Dog’-2017, 40″x 40″
Green Timbers Forest is in Surrey. That’s Surrey, in Metropolitan Vancouver, not London England!
My dog “George” is patiently waiting for me to stop fiddling around and continue the “sniff and wiz”.
He’s unaware that he’s been brought here today specifically to model.
Being a charming Standard Poodle, he’s a very good poser and very patient with the hired help (that would be me).
Nothing phases him, if this tunnel was there… he’d jump right in.

‘Marta’s Black OM’


‘Marta’s Black OM’-2015, 33″x 33″
This piece is one of a series of collaborations with well known Vancouver Artist, Marta Baricsa,
http://www.martabaricsa.com/
I love Marta’s work and we entered into a collaborative endeavour, at the suggestion of a curator friend of ours. I’m pleased to say I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Marta. I appreciate that she’s trusted me with her work…. knowing full well, that I’m going to manipulate it. This doesn’t surprise me, now that I know Marta. Her confidence in her work, is obvious in every piece.

‘Burrard Inlet with Blue Dot’


‘Burrard Inlet with Blue Dot’-2016, 45″x 90″
This is another piece, in my ‘HarbourFront in Alternate Reality’ Series.
The Pacific, blue sky and sun, made this winter day a piece of cake!
Vancouver embraces the 21st Century in a uniquely Canadian way.
It’s a very cool city, especially in the winter…

“West Hastings’


‘West Hastings’-2017, 45″x75″
I actually shot the components for this piece in November, 2016. After a record number of rainy days this winter; I finally got around to working with it.

This park is little Refuge from The Towers. I find the Towers both beautiful and menacing. They’re efficient on one level and wasteful on another.

There’s no denying their beauty though…

‘Triple Insect Vision-Downtown’

‘Triple Insect Vision-Downtown’-45″x 45″, 2017

If we Humans had vision like this; no one could ever sneak up on anybody! No surprises. I guess that’s why it’s so hard to catch a fly… I’ve made this insect view more complicated than Mother Nature likely would, for esthetic purpose. Artist’s aren’t confined by Nature’s frugality… thankfully.

This is of course, Canada Place, where the cruise ships dock, in downtown Vancouver.

‘Sailing Around Downtown’

‘Sailing Around Downtown’-2017, 45″x 80″

“I sometimes feel I have a little Don Quixote in me…

seeing things the way they are, is never good enough anymore.”

 

These days, a lot of people in Media and Politics, are working in “Alternate Facts”. This is a very creative field; you can do anything you want! To Artists… this is no big deal! That’s all we do. Yet in our culture; you won’t find any artists on Corporate Boards, or as Political Advisors…too Don Quixote. They refuse to stay inside the “Cool-Aid Bubble”, “too creative”,  “too unruly”…. God forbid, somebody should mention “TEAM”!

It’s all true… (disclaimer-my reality bubble!)

This piece needs a big space.  It can be rotated in any direction… if you’re indecisive.

‘Downtown Sky’

'Downtown Sky' the surreal art of Chris Thomas.

‘Downtown Sky’-2017, 45″x 90″

Information towers with 50,000 eyes,

most not watching.

Left, Right, Up or Down,

all the same… but different…
