David Thomas comments
'There is something of the meditative and hermetic about sitting in a room alone, studying objects of little importance with a concentrated attention rarely given to anything else.
I started using still-ilfe arrangements through an interest in formally constructed non-representational painting, using objects as stand-ins for abstract shapes. This enables the exploration of the qualities of space that seem to be a constant within the history of painting; it serves as a reference from outside the discrete space of the painting and provides pleasure and interest, including and beyond the formal values of colour and shape.'
