The Art of Chili Thom

Your experience in nature depends on how you choose to position yourself within it. My art transports the viewer to remote natural landscapes and acts not only as a form of escapism, but also as a tool top deepen their appreciation for the natural world in which we are all inextricably connected.

My process is about discovering and creating layers of patterns that combine together to create a colourful vibrating 3D landscape, similar to the contour lines on a map. This technique allows the eye to blend all of the components in a progression of colour and form that make sense only when viewed as a whole. I attempt to covey a feeling of complex simplicity on my canvases, which speak of the importance of cooperation between all the individual components, analogous to how all individuals on the planet must work together with nature to in order to achieve a harmonious result.
