Considering Art Podcast – Thomas Allen, painter

In this podcast, Thomas Allen describes his current woodland life, how sociological theories inform his work, his opinion that human beings need to be “de-centred” from the natural world, how Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious inspired his so-called contemporary cave paintings, and the new work being prepared for his Mall Galleries exhibition next year.
