The exhibition, HEAP, will be an immersive installation comprised of hundreds of small mixed-media collages by Larry Thomas. He has explored the concepts of perception, deception, secrets, code and camouflage, both visually and conceptually, for more than 20 years. For the Nerman Museum’s Kansas Focus Gallery, he has constructed intimate collages employing traditional means like painting, drawing and printmaking combined with the more contemporary medium of digitally generated images — each work a response to the barrage of information and misinformation that engulfs us daily.
Born in Sedalia, Missouri, Thomas received MA and MFA degrees from the University of Iowa and a BFA from Southwest Missouri State University. He was Chair and Professor of Fine Arts and taught digital imaging, painting and drawing at Johnson County Community College from 1991 to 2016.
