Research/Creative Activity

Mr. Albrecht’s work has historically focused on the vulnerability of the human body -- particularly the male body -- as it explores the visceral nature of tissue and bone, as well as the ephemeral voice, utilizing varied strategies of production that span drawing, painting, video and performance. Recent work examines human action and its consequences in drawings and paintings where tension exists between what is pictured in terms of bodily record against the absence of any actual figure.

Thomas Albrecht has exhibited and performed in Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Baltimore, Providence, and New York, as well as in the Czech Republic, and he has lectured both nationally and internationally on topics ranging from teaching pedagogy to contemporary visual practices. He most recently had a one-person exhibition in Spring 2008 at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City.
