Devin Thor is both a geologist and an artist. As a geologist he has researched and studied the on-going natural forces that have shaped our planet, such as sea-level changes, glaciation, and seismic activity. As an artist, Thor is a painter and sculptor, channeling his emotional energy and love for the natural world into abstract form.
His series of wood and found-objects sculptures, “Gumby Goes,” are fanciful images that explore a deeper, and sometimes darker, side of the human psyche. The humorous clay animation character Gumby was portrayed engaging in fantastic adventures. He became a recognized cultural icon, which Thor uses to explore various human psychological conditions.
