In his recent exhibition “Enlightenment,” at the California African American Museum, Thomas sought to expand on the term to offer his own definition in relation to visual art:

Enlightenment is a sincere effort to bring elements of
art as messengers of our potential divinity. There are
as many ways to reach source as there are people.
Each person has a connection to divine nature. This is
one aspect; using visual perception to awaken oneself.
