Zachary Thomas

My artwork is inspired by the architectural elements that surround me. I feel there is a well of history in these structures that pose a sense of importance. I make a point to use familiar visual elements, yet remove the specific locations of each building, industrial structures, or apartment complex that I interpret. I look to make the places I draw have anonymity so that each image is accessible to the viewer. The use of layered wash, the final statement of select line, and working on multiple pieces simultaneously is a process that I have honed. My drawings reinforce the exploration of architecture as a meaningful subject to view and translate.
