About Thomas Donaldson
I paint to the find things lost between the obvious; to explore the relationship between culture and nature. During the creative process I invite the unknown and surprise myself with the the freedom associated within structures.
Thomas is an English painter living and working in Asia. His works are committed to a rigorous development and re-evaluation of his practice and are marked by a willingness to turn around his thinking during its development which gives it an excitement and flair supported by rigorous execution. This has led to him receiving many commissions and exhibitions regionally, nationally and internationally. He is also a dedicated lecture and has held various academic positions in the UK and Asia.
