Illusion of Confusion: Beginning of a new project, a series of paintings exploring ongoing themes of Absurdism and Chaos but also new more personal themes such as disorientation, alienation, fractured relations and dealing with the random. It is acrylic on canvas, employs many of my signature motifs but also broke new ground regarding the nature of my abstraction and the materials used, some of which now underpin my process in all my works.

Hannah Thomas is a semi-abstract painter, currently based in Wlltshire, UK. She attended the University of the West of England in Bristol, graduating with a BA in Art and Visual Culture in 2000. She then spent ten years working as a music photographer in London, transitioning to painting in 2017. Hannah's style is constantly evolving, playing with simple abstraction, surrealist and figurative elements. Her themes of the absurd, romantic and chaotic combined with issues of conflicting desires, pressures of ageing and the constraints placed on the individual by society fuel her work.
