In this series, Thomas creates luminous and iridescent commemorative mandalas whose goal is to heal by giving the survivors a voice. As well, each piece is a memorial to the lives that were taken; we must endeavour to never forget their names.
Consequently, we are reminded of our humanity and the fragility of the bonds that hold us together. We remember the event, the names of those who were taken and those who survived.
In an effort to draw awareness to the pandemic of needless violence, Thomas uses beauty to counter brutality. These images are his response to the madness and chaos in our world, as well as a way to pay tribute to the victims of senseless hate and violence.
Each piece is titled by the city, location and the date of the event. It is up to the viewer to discover the connections.
