“This body of work is influenced by a painting from the Dutch artist DeBruyn. The painting on the one hand is a cluttered room using several techniques but does not guide the viewer’s eye. Each viewer’s eye is captured by a different aspect of the painting – some see the sunlight coming in from the outside first, others see the cluttered floor initially, one might see the different colors or the detail. DeBruyn wanted to point that every one of us perceives the same scene differently.
She is dedicated to the effect of abstract, color, detail and form – or so it is said of Nelly Thomas. Her subjects are the art of a place, the depth of a moment, the color of the instance. Her trademark is her individual style that has developed over the years.
“Hints of Place” is a collection of fine art images which show places without the usual clichés. This is what makes them of universal appeal.”
