". . . At first glance the painting looks like decorative art because of the motifs distributed on a white background - imagery which moves to the forefront with its colour and luxuriance. However, as one approaches, it secretes a strangeness which remains with the viewer long after he/she leaves the gallery. Some of these images appear to be flowers, but are they really?"
-Christian Sester, In reference to the Supernatural panorama triptych, in Etats d'Art, bulletin of the Friends Society of Arts la Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, 2001.Wielding tools from a smithy, Jeremy Thomas deftly bonds petals of steel together. At roughly 2,000 degrees they are inflated with compressed air, resulting in his soft, heavy puffed steel sculptures. Finished with industrial powdercoating, they bear the titles of their colors: "John Deere Yellow," "Montana Silver," and "Zen Noh Red." Large and small, these pieces evoke a new reaction from each of their complex angles.
