“All manner of human efforts to change the systems that govern us requires an equal level of opposing effort by the establishment to maintain it. There is an expectation that change will be resisted; it’s human instinct. This collection of works addresses this human condition. As an artist I am driven to make work that speaks about the innate need to find balance. I believe that the objects we make perform a necessary and important function that connects us to the balancing effects of ‘collective consciousness’ that enhances our daily lives.” Thomas Mann 2015
Thomas Mann is a New Orleans based artist and designer. The works in this exhibition have been created while on residency hosted by Despard Gallery, Hobart.
