Evidence That Something Happened: Studies From Wood
Thomas Lumley creates singular pieces of charcoal to make intricate “delicate and muscular” observations of trees, inspired by the poetic notion of a handful of carbon being “all that will remain of most of us in the long run”. To make his drawing implements he burns willow twigs in airless conditions and his process draws on various cultural references, such as burned wood that is smeared on faces of the Saddhus, in the feast of Kumbh Mela.
Until 9 December 2018, The Muse Gallery | Studio, 269 Portobello Rd, London, W11 1LR.
