Color as a form of energy which stimulates our perceptual processes is vital in conveying emotions, is Fara's first point of impact. Depth, texture, and reflective surfaces are the subtleties which are experienced upon further observation.
Thomas is interested in creating complex compositions out of elements that overlap each other, through a variety of planes which make the viewer’s eye constantly travel through the image, moving from one imaginary space to the other. Built upon each other, layers can be perceived as autonomous abstractions, or dependent elements which create new and convoluted images. Thomas has long worked with the intrinsic relationship between color and light to produce optically charged works that challenge our perception of space and color. Her paintings interact with the space in which they are exhibited and connect the viewer within their reflective qualities. Depth pulls the viewer in while the many reflections push the viewer out, inspiring audiences to ponder, imagine and feel.
