Boll Buggy Black

The polychromed structures of Thomas’ work suggest mutable origin and material, the metal seemingly crushed or formed from other recognisable objects at various viewpoints — the uncoated and corroding steel bursting from its gleaming, chrome body. Inspired by the form of the cotton boll, a seed pod from which the fibre is harvested, Thomas slowly opens a bridge between agriculture, vegetable, and industrial mechanism — exploring the dark history and mechanical strain of the plant (notoriously one of the most resource-dependent crops, a problem classically solved by throwing slavery at the equation) versus its beauty and versatility.
Artist: Jeremy Thomas
