Gilly Thomas

Biography / CV of Gilly Thomas

Gilly Thomas`s interest in art and sculpture has been long standing. She wanted to do Art from school but at the time "you didn`t do that". Art was definitely off the menu in the late sixties. So having taken several different courses in portrait sculpture, art history, glass fusing, ceramic shell moulding and working in a foundry, she eventually, at the age of 50, took herself off to The Frink to get down to what she was really interested in - sculpture and more sculpture!

Artist Statement of Gilly Thomas

My interest in art and sculpture has been long standing. I wished to do Art from school but at the time "you didn`t do that". So having taken several different courses in portrait sculpture, art history, glass fusing, ceramic shell moulding and working in a foundry, I eventually took myself of to The Frink to get down to what I am really interested in - Sculpture!

I now produce bronzes and works in crystacal. I also enjoy pen and ink drawing which have evolved from life drawing sessions.

Natural forms have an elegance and serenity which I seek to capture in simplified human and animal forms. When I am modelling a peice I allow the line to flow so that the eye takes in the shape calmly and the hands move over the peice gently bringing quietness to the spirit.

Customer comment on 'Sidewind 2 (Bronze abstract Figures in wind statue)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Peter

Just to say how thrilled and delighted we are with our recent sculpture purchased through Art Parks online – “When I Saw You” by Kay Singla (a truly gifted artist and wonderful person).

Once again, our buying experience has been absolutely first class – both in our dealings with you and Sarah at Art Parks and with the individual sculptors directly.
