Gwennan Thomas is a Franco-British artist who grew up in both France and South Wales. She was nominated for Abstract Critical Newcomer Awards in 2012 and selected for Flowers Gallery’s Artist of the Day in 2013. She has shown up regularly in the UK and has also participated in several curatorial projects. She graduated with an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art in 2018 and is currently an Associate Artist at Open School East in Margate.

Her practice is studio-based and process-driven, working primarily with painting which sits between abstraction and figuration. The work explores fluidity in the context of memory, bicultural identity and language. She paints on a variety of surfaces and often makes her paints, building a body of research on materiality and the tactile. She is interested in showing works in alternative formats and often plays with how they are shown or grouped. The paintings have a strong focus on colour and use framing mechanisms and repetitive motifs derived from film scenes, personal memories and the built environment.
