Anyta Thomas, born and raised in Camden New Jersey has been dedicated to the arts since the early age of three. Through art forms such as dance, poetry, and performing arts including playing the trumpet since junior high school, Anyta Thomas has worked to find her voice in visual arts. She  has entrenched herself in the art form of sculpture. In addition Thomas’ choice of medium is a very unique and challenging form of sculpting: aluminum mesh wire sculpture.

Thomas best describes her process. “My use of this medium introduces change and opens ones eyes to possibilities. My work  crosses the barriers of race, class, gender and socio-economics. My work is inspired by self discovery and my experiences. My sculpture actively uses both sides of the brain, which is fascinating. It is a mathematical equation composed of light, space, composition, simplicity, beauty, dimension and volume”. These factors are readily evident when you experience Anyta Thomas’ sculpture, as it is both the created sculpture by Thomas as well as the masterful shadows created behind the sculpture. Her fascination with mathematics and physics allow the shadows behind the sculpture to take a life of their own.

Through her aluminum mesh wire sculpture, Thomas accomplishes her goal for the viewer. “I want my art (sculpture) to be that vessel which others use to connect with their soul, inner-spirit and or memories”.
