...Thomas Walthers paintings evoke an invented world where images represent real places with absurd pairings of subjects and chronologies. His images elicit contradictions that unfold slowly to the viewer, alluding to the spectacle of contemporary media in a shrinking global community. Within his gray-scale paintings, imagery and color are distilled to allow the perceptible realities of the work to be isolated as content. Walther earned an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002 and is a professor at Wright College.
