Thomas Legnon is an American born artist whose distinct style has crossed over many mediums throughout a thirty year career. Utilizing spatial narratives woven through the Art, Thomas draws from Nature, Technology and Mystery.
While earlier works incorporate representation, Thomas's Encaustic Paintings series grew from an archaic instinct- the desire to create without a visual or conceptual template. An endless body of work designed to display as a continuum, a Mythos, hence Mythosart.
Each piece is unique and has been intuitively designed through the creative process. Fusion, melting, coaxing, brushwork, tape, razor scoring and burnishing all factor into every painting. The liquid wax viable for only seconds mirrors life's fleeting moments. Markings resemble an interweaving of organic and modern aspects; architectural and elemental, each pouring over or through one another.
The artworks themselves are portals and allow the viewer to interpret and analyze with them on an individual level. Hundreds of Encaustic panels act as dream conduits, a refreshing departure from specific imagery of an image obsessed world. Acting either as stand alone pieces or capable of being grouped in a never ending choice of arrangement.
Thomas lives and works in the Hudson Valley, NY.
Thomas has worked with the following Artists and Institutions: Jeff Koons, Al Held, Doug & Mike Starn, Polich-Tallax Foundry, Art Basel Miami, Intiman Theatre, Seattle Opera, The Experience Museum, E3, SONY, Lucasfilm & DIsney.
