1 OCTOBER 2011 - 23 NOVEMBER 2011

In 2011 Jonathan Thomson was selected as a prize winner of the Kobe Biennale 2011 Art in Container International Competition. His winning work “A Walk in the Clouds”comprises a pair of cloudscapes, each ten metres wide, fabricated in Electroluminescent Wire hand-embroidered onto aluminium panels.

One set of panels comprises a cloudscape in a Western vernacular while the other is inspired by the repeat pattern of “prosperous” clouds found in the visual and decorative arts of China and Japan. In this work the light from the West is reflected in the East and vice versa symbolising the fact that we all live under the same sky.
