Entomology by Thomas Jackson



Description

After my last exhibition ‘Entomology’ at China Heights gallery in April, I have grown to really appreciate the form and beauty of insects.

Their alien physiology has become something that I admire and fascinates my imagination. Their shiny and reflective outer shells and transparent glass like wings create a texture unique in the animal kingdom. Because of this they have become a subject that never fails to give me inspiration.

Over the years I have collected a small number of entomology artifacts that I have used as reference. I will bring these in to help inspire you, as well as print reference and my own materials that I use to show you how I create my works. We will experiment with a variety of materials like Watercolour & Gouache as I guide you through how to get the best out of insect art.

About Thomas Jackson

Thomas’s works have long been subjective of nature, creating a small glimpse into his view of the world.

Most recently Thomas has been working with Insects and their forms in his latest body of works, ‘Entomology’ at China Heights gallery last April.

Their alien physiology has become something that I both admire and fascinates my imagination. Their shiny and reflective outer shells and transparent glass like wings create a texture unique in the animal kingdom.

Because of this I feel that insects are a perfect subject matter for people interested in enhancing their skills with drawing and painting. Or learning new ones.
