About Thomas Dowdeswell

About the artwork

Thomas Dowdeswell pulls back the curtain on current controversial issues with surreal political satire, challenging the viewer to confront, digest and empathise with multiple perspectives, both literally and theoretically.

Dowdeswell’s works may be complex but they remain decipherable like an unnerving cautionary poem about of the end of civilisation as we know it. Meanwhile, under the geometrical figures, symbolic colour palettes and explicit imagery, an intellectual voice is always present.

​Dowdeswell’s surrealist style creates a dreamscape atmosphere where he deliberately juxtaposes imagery of desperation and opulence, victimisation and exploitation, in an attempt to explore the inequality of society through a flurry of abstraction and symbolism. When expressed through structural shapes, the form and energy is reminiscent of Italian Futurist artist Umberto Boccioni's Elasticity (1912). Sometimes that flurry takes a complete abstract form, reminding the viewer of Kandinsky’s Compositions (1913), and thus the longing for liberation.
