Thomas Legnon is an American born artist whose distinct style has crossed over many mediums throughout a thirty year career. Thomas draws inspiration from natural elements and transformation of matter to produce his unique artworks. Each piece has been intuitively and consciously designed through creative process; the work itself akin to portals which allow the viewer to immerse and interpret the many layers of the complex visual narrative. Earlier works in Acrylics and Oils incorporated representation and figurative elements while blurring lines between 'fine art' and 'illustration'. Abstraction has always been integral to the work and intended to display as a continuum- A Mythos; hence taking the moniker Mythosart since 1996.
With this narrative firmly in place, the Encaustic Series set out to make purely non representative art with infinite curatorial flexibility...all groupings can be arranged in a myriad of ways and still function as a whole.
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, interweaving organic and modern aspects; architectural and elemental, each pouring over or through one another. Hundreds of Encaustic panels act as daydream conduits, celebrating departure from specific imagery of an image obsessed world.
The materials have shifted over the years, but the instinct and motivation remains the same- the desire to create without visual or conceptual templates-a rarity in this world of replication, re appropriation and Insta regurgitation.
Thomas lives and works in the Hudson Valley, NY.
