Thomas Chimes, after enjoying success as a young artist in New York, followed the advice of Marcel Duchamp and lived as a hermit in his hometown of Philadelphia until his death in 2009. His experimentation with color, form, and iconography in the paintings and portraits he made brought him local recognition, culminating in a major retrospective at the Philadelphia Museum of Art a few years before his death. Since his death, his work has become recognized internationally, with an exhibition at Galerie der Stadt Tuttlingen in Germany, which travelled to the Bernaki Museum in Greece, as well as acquisitions by the Centre Pompidou museum. His work has been the subject of a recent book on 'pataphysics published by MIT Press, and was discussed during 'Pataphysics, Then and Now, an imaginative conference exploring the life, works, and continued influence of Alfred Jarry (1873-1907) and his "science of imaginary solutions".
