Leaf Behind’ plays with organic form and mixed media to create this visual analogy of what we leave behind from our lifestyle and consumption choices.
The Monstera plant exceeds 9 metres in above ground growth and its roots measure up to twenty metres in length, The Latin meaning abnormal and yet it’s such a common and banal companion in households and gardens, it can become an unseen presence.
Thomas references the invisible mountain of waste common to current lifestyles, through this ancient giant leaf motif with its plastic like surface. This image could also be viewed as affirmation of hope for a greener cleaner future footprint to become common place and invisible presence.
