Anyta Thomas. Born and raised in Camden, NJ. Discovered by You've Been Framed Gallery in Neward, DE arouund 1998. Made in Philadelphia, PA by my current gallery representative Sande Webster Gallery.
I found screen mesh wire to be my voice for learning the most about the non-corporal me and for changing how people view themselves and life. My use of this medium introduces change and opens ones eyes to possibilities. Through this, my work crosses many barriers of race, class, gender, and socio-economy.
Sculpting is literally an extension of my existence. My work is inspired by self discovery and my life experiences. The up close dramatic composition, the changing perspective views, and the transparent intricacies, leave a powerful impression with each viewer. Without these essentials, stands a simple piece of aluminum screen wire.
