John Brock Art Alcove


February – March 2019

We’re featuring two artists this month!

Thomas Lindley

Our artist in the John Brock Art Alcove for February and March is Thomas Lindley, a photo-collagist from St. Pete Beach.  Thomas worked as an advertising photographer in New York for over 25 years, collaborating with companies such as Johnson & Johnson and General Electric.  He has also taught at Ringling College of Art and Design and at the State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota.

Thomas feels that his work is an example of image post-visualization: a form of expression that takes an image beyond the original capture.  His art combines his photographs to create a new two-dimensional print which he then manipulates in color and tone.  The subject matter comes from the eclectic view he has of the world around him.  He is able to allow the images to build upon each other and join disparate elements together.
