Thomas Weir is an artist from Edmonton, where he is enrolled in the BFA program at the University of Alberta. He is currently focusing on painting, sculpture, and installation. In his work, he references a variety of themes, working from those existing in the realm of popular culture to specific markers of his own life. By referencing universally recognizable themes, he hopes to provide the viewer with an initial means of entry to his work, where they can then reflect on the more personally significant subject matter. Thomas has most recently exhibited his work in the “Material” exhibition at Edmonton’s Latitude 53, and in “a show, a book, a happening” curated by Pidgin Collective at Calgary’s The New Gallery, both in 2018.
