Edmond Thommen describes himself first, and foremost, as a Photographic Artist. For him the magic starts with the camera and his photographs.
The female figure forms the basis of his artworks. They may soften or highlight the body’s outline by blending it into several layers of images he superimposes on the figure. Sometimes the figure seems to disappear behind a barrage of organic materials or man-made structures - until the viewer’s eyes start to actively search for the lines that in his or her mind “must be there” behind the scene.
His work is “layered” and is visually and intellectually demanding on the viewer to find the form.
In doing so, viewers delve beyond the surface. Indeed, Edmond’s photographic artworks encourage us to look;
and, if we look properly, ‘to see.’
