Chasing Colour (2022)

Thomas Jenkins is a visual artist working with photographic processes. His work explores colour and abstraction to question what is defined as a photograph in the modern day. His methods stem from interests in contemporary and historical photography, painting and sculpture. The pictures are not intended to be understood but to be felt, experienced and seen. They are an indulgence into colour, which is a fundamental form of visual communication. Describing colour is intrinsically difficult, as a single colour, like blue, can only be described through comparison to blue objects or entirely different colours. The images make no attempt to represent the physical world, instead creating discord within the photographic process.​
