Thomas Lisle is a British artist based in London. He started making glitch videos in the style of paintings in the early 1980s and pioneered the genre. Recently, Thomas’s works have been related to painting and the idea of progressing paintings in the digital age, time-based paintings and painting in 3D. He has had several solo exhibitions, mostly in London, and some of his works are featured in the collections of the Tate Modern and Museum of Modern Art.
Thomas’s work combines abstract forms, figurative, simulated liquids, simulated brush strokes, and complex programmed events. His work responds to colour, form and motion in ways only possible with 3D animation and simulation techniques to make dynamic, dramatic and thought-provoking art. He draws inspiration from nature, psychology, comparative philosophy and the past and present history of painting.
