Thom Roberts Crown readings
Thom Roberts is fascinated with and reads peoples crowns (the spiral where your hair grows from) and draws the animals and creatures he perceives as residing in subjects’ crowns.
"Thom Roberts’ crown reading provides one compelling example of an alternative form of communication being opened up between artist and audience, one that has a very different quality to the visual expression that may or may not be enacted by an object on a wall. What makes it so compelling to me is the metaphorical potential of this act – of reaching out to another person, whether friend or stranger, and making contact, hand to head. In the end, that may be the closest any of us can get to approaching the mystery that is the consciousness of another human being."
