Artist Thomas Brezing from Balbriggan, Co. Dublin has been awarded artist-in-residence on the Creative Spark Residency Programme.
Thomas was born in Germany in 1969 and moved to Ireland in the early 1990’s. Thomas’ work explores the collective shadow of contemporary mass culture from a variety of conceptual, painterly and performative perspectives. Edge-walking the lines between beauty and horror, abstraction and representation, the near and the far, the visible and the invisible. Brezing’s images and installations confront the enormous power of humanity’s collective will and its impact on the environment.
Thomas will develop a new series of work for the Creative Spark Residency Programme exhibition at An Táin Arts Centre in October 2017.
This residency programme has been generously supported by Louth Local Authorities Art Service as a means of supporting the development of visual artists in the region.
