“A playfully metaphorical work that embraces the personal and political, Cloud Study invites the viewer to meditate on the tragicomic nature of life, with the movement of the vane mirroring these oscillations as it twists and turns in the wind.”

Interview with Jamie Fitzpatrick in Artuner about Grim Tales, Cassina Projects in New York.
‘How Do You Like It, How Do You Like It’, has a small head with a tongue sticking out, at the back. And then the tongue wiggles. And it licks, I think, the leg. What I really like is that you have these things that sit in the room, and everyone comes round to the front because that’s where all the effort is, People are looking and they hear this tap tap tap and everyone runs around the back. It takes just enough time to be heard and noticed, but when they get there, nothing’s happening. I like the power shift you get.’

Jacob Charles Wilson in-depth interview for The London Magazine with Charlie Godet Thomas with Alys Williams, discussing ‘Cloud Study’ (Thomas’s new public sculpture commission for SCULPTURE AT Bermondsey Square), the gallerist’s relationship to programming outside the white cube, and artist representation.

“Floating above your head a silver-grey weather vane in the shape of a speech bubble, turning with the wind … For Joe Btfsplk, the moment when he traps the cloud is a moment of revelation and renewed life. But there’s a certain irony in this episode taken by Thomas, that to save himself, Joe Btfsplk had to release the cloud, condemning himself and giving in to the forces he couldn’t control. It links back to Thomas’ own thought that limitations are linked to creativity, and similarly, that the difficulties faced by galleries and artists in London today may drive new models of working together.”
