Thom Rees’ practice explores shape and form through process and material appropriated from domestic environments and their associated phenomena. The phenomenological investigation of ambiguity and a speculative approach to the observation of lived spaces create the framework of his practice. Rees’ work focusses on the visual interpretation of both the material and immaterial world of a social and physical space, situated within the boundaries of the conscious and subconscious. Through ambiguous objects and large-scale sculpture, structural and formalistic gestures, as well as situations, He invites the audience to experience the work through apperception and affect. Exploring themes of aesthetic experience, Lacanian mirror stage theory, eastern philosophy and existentialist theory within the work, he sets to align the viewers focus on a wider exploration of grounding within the environment they situate themselves in, by offering the objects and situations as tools for self-reflection.
