Elena Thomas has an ever-changing multi-disciplinary practice that ranges across drawing, textiles, installation, sound, song-writing and performance.
Her train of thought meanders through relationships she witnesses either first hand, or as observer and eavesdropper.
She finds herself increasingly interested in the way political issues effect those relationships. Her current project Five, Six, Pick up Sticks concerns the statistics of child poverty in her own part of the West Midlands. She is working towards a solo exhibition of this work in May 2023.
Elena has a Masters Degree in Arts Practice and Education from Birmingham City University’s School of Art. Her visual works, sound and performances have been seen across the UK, in the USA and Sweden.
