My work presents a deep interest in ceremony, mythology, black spirituality and archiving,
I am also very much curious of the relationship between memory and erasure in the way one understands mortality.
My practice presents a deep passion for “documenting” constantly recording experiences/concepts through photography, moving image and movement.
In recent works, I have begun to explore how concepts such as: faith, endurance, and potentiality function within the history of the afro-american experience.
Anthony Jamari Thomas (b.1990) received his Bachelor's degree from John Jay College, New York NY (2012). Thomas's graduating thesis examined the interplay between metaphysics and philosophy in the work of artist: William Blake, leading to a brief stint in studio art and ultimately, full-time practice. Thomas employs varying disciplines to examine the relationship between cultural performance, memory and identity. Since his debut, Thomas has exhibited with several spaces throughout New York including: Art In Flux Harlem (2013, 2014), El Museo del Barrio (2014), No Longer Empty (2014) Galerie Protege (2015), BronxArtSpace (2017) National Black Theatre which acquired Trayvon's Cross (2014) for their permanent collection (2017) and Dover Street Market Los Angeles (2018).
