With his pictures, Thomas Magnusson wants to try to reflect the inner and outer world, their expanse and how they can relate to each other. A perambulation between different, strong colours and layers of appendages. The intense yellow, dark blue, red, pink ... Threads. One can see it present but not clearly explained.

It will hopefully be making it's way to other spaces. More news to follow!Read more
