John Morton Thomas "Falls", 2011
John Morton Thomas - his crisp style, hard-edged confident imagery with tailored personality represents perspective through a modern geometric art collection. Simplistic isolation, blocking out shapes – is this artist’s explosive collide of colors. “I never know where a painting is going when I start. That’s what keeps me painting,” John expresses. This is exactly why this collection is artfully stimulating and each painting or suite series is unpredictable. John Morton Thomas was born in Athens, Georgia and grew up in Rochester, New York. He attended Northern University in Evanston, Illinois. John relocated to Southern California, lived in Santa Monica, Laguna Beach and Palm Springs before settling in Laguna Niguel, CA.
