Charlie Godet Thomas Sketch for a Broken Neon Sign (Fool’s Gold)

A print of a painted study for a neon sign concerned with shifts in language.

A print of a painted study for the neon work Fool’s Gold featured in the artist’s solo show DIM LIT at Assembly Point (2019); Sketch for a Broken Neon (Fool’s Gold) brings Thomas’ interest in methods adopted by writers, and particularly found poetry. The neon work was originally commissioned to adorn the façade of an auction house in Mexico City, but the commission was never completed.
