“Larry Thomas: HEAP,” Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art

Deception and detection, the personal and universal, the systematic and chaotic, are just some of the dualities that flow throughout Larry Thomas’ installation of 280 mixed media artworks at the Nerman Museum’s Kansas Focus Gallery. Thomas’ small, brightly colored, collaged paintings on wood at first sight appear upbeat, even playful.  Seen in totality, this is […]
