Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery - Cass Art Featuring Thomas Allen
'Thomas Allen is an artist who approaches art from a decisively original perspective. Using sociological theories and the input of perfect strangers, his detailed drawings are filled with dream-like landscapes and surrealist figures.
Last year he won the Seaward Prize in The National Open Art Competition, which is now open for entries this year, and he also received the Anthony J Lester Art Critic Award and recentlythe Arts Club Charitable Trust Award.
Ahead of his engaging exhibition early next year, we asked Thomas about his current Contemporary Cave Paintings, his use of public 'scribbles' and the materials he uses to make up his mythical drawings.'
