Nottingham based artist David Thomas's practice is grounded in his interest and understanding of contemporary culture and belief systems within theoretical frameworks. He questions theories and structures opting to take neither side, instead Thomas critiques these concepts taking an often humorous and playful approach. Thomas's work often gestures towards points at either end of the spectrum of understanding, balancing precariously between issues.

David Thomas has exhibited extensively across the UK and Europe and throughout the USA, Japan and China. He has recently had exhibitions at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (USA), Flux Factory New York (USA), VIS-À-VIS Art Lab (China), Peer6 Gallery London (UK) and recent Solo exhibitions at Crowd 6 Gallery Birmingham (UK) and Entrance Gallery Prague (CZ). Recent projects have included The Art of Ideas, supported by Arts Council England & Arts Co London featured by Saatchi Gallery (London), and a residency in Xiamen, Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Shanghai (China). Thomas is currently undertaking a public commission in Gateshead due to be showcased in may 2009, commissioned by Rednile Projects & Gateshead City Council (UK)
