Gareth Thomas Solo Exhibition
10th – 31st October 2015
An exhibition of 30 new landscapes of Wales celebrating Gareth Thomas’ 60th Birthday and 35 years as a
The landscape painter Gareth Thomas has been exhibiting his pictures since the early Eighties and in the
last few years he has been soaring to new heights. Born in Swansea in the spring of 1955, he is marking
his sixty years with a solo exhibition in Llandeilo. For this landmark event, at Fountain Fine Art, he has
produced his latest set of oil paintings of his home patch of Gower (he has resided at Llangennith for the
last twenty-five years or so) and of various other locations in Wales.
On one level, these works are about continuity, because they demonstrate his enduring “love of the act of
painting” and an obvious ability to convey his direct experiences of the natural beauty and drama of his
chosen locations. However, these latest works are also about change, as evidenced by an increased
freedom and fluency. They have a new found maturity and, quite literally, more physical substance. – Ceri
