Thomas Langley is a fine artist working with an interdisciplinary practice that includes painting, sculpture, performance, drawing and installation. The breadth of his working methods is a means to discover and explore new territories for artistic comment. He is interested in the idea of manual thought – how thinking gets into an object. In parallel, he likes the idea that this manual thought could blur the boundaries between an artwork and the artistic life that gives rise to it. The material expression of consciousness also turns into a question about the physical/spatial boundaries the artwork occupies, and the status it maintains in the wider world. His work is often self-referential although approaching certain universal truths through that; the human condition, or more specifically the artistic condition, are what he strives to make contact with.
