Persian carpets are stories and poetry told in pictures.
These visual narratives are the memories, the histories and even the souls of previous owners.
Each carpet is composed of dyed wool and silk, which are carefully knotted by deft hands, made from memory
and handed down from one generation to the next.
Tabriz, Esfahan, Nain, Bukhara, Qom and Shiraz are but a few of these regions that have produced characteristic styles.
Thomas’ work has always focused on function, form, symmetry and beauty.
In his Persia series, he explores how these carpets adorn our floors and walls, and beautify our lives.
These vibrant images, most of which measure 40 inches, squared, give a new voice to ancient poetry.
