Form - less

Starting with a formalistic approach, Thion's work focuses on the shape, the form that define us as entities.
Taking the simplification to the max, he leaves enough details still to condurre an image we can understand and relate to.
The colours and the lines become the main component of the composition as well as the mask-like faces that guide the audience
into the work.

Intimacy

Intimacy is a simple gesture; a hand cupping a receiving face, an arm draped over a welcoming back, the pressing of posterior to groin. These are the moments that Thion's new work explores; the points at which two entities are brought together as one form.
There is a compelling sense of bravery in Thion's work. First, in the sense of a bold simplicity. By placing these vibrant forms in a void we are immediately interpolated by them, but suddenly our focus is narrowed further still to the very loci of these gestures of intimacy. There is no where else to look.

Secondly, the sexuality present in these works (as hard as it is to admit in modern society) runs contrary to current hegemonic values. The bravery here is derived from making the source of potential outrage the singular focus common to these pieces. While society at large may try to censor these tender, human moments that unite us, Thion is unflinching in bring them to the forefront of his work.

Perhaps most striking in the series, "In The Mirror", depicts a man, languidly reclining into that portal between the inner most mental and the outer most physical; a mirror. Watching on wistfully our subject explores both of these nether regions; an internal and external interrogation.
