Lyndon Thomas’s artistic career has spanned three decades and included three diverse, yet creatively linked disciplines; painting, pottery and woodcraft. Lyndon has achieved great success across all three media.
“I first exhibited paintings, mainly figurative oils, in the early 1960’s. The work at the time attempted to place industry into landscape. I changed direction in 1966 and started making stoneware pottery that was exhibited and sold throughout Wales and the Marches. I started re painting in 2008 and evolved a method of working in acrylic on paper using painting knives to achieve textured effects.
The bulk of my subject matter is the landscape of North Pembrokeshire and the Lleyn Pensinsula, the two western extremeties of Wales. I am particularly interested in human habitation within the landscape, habitation often isolated, almost apologetic in its setting. The exploration of a subject usually requires up to five paintings to capture the range of moods that various weather conditions provide. Examples of my work may be found at a number of galleries in Wales.”
