THE ART OF THE NATURAL WORLD
The significance of art
Tom's paintings are not simply beautiful, they have a powerful energetic effect. He paints an emotive abstract impressionism. The paintings are experiential. The subject matter is nature and humanity. They range from impressionism to abstraction
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but the inward significance.
A FLUID STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Art is dynamic energy
We can assess the color palette, symmetry and composition, but art is more than a superficial aesthetic; art is a beautiful invitation to the imagination. Art is a vehicle of the subconscious. The appreciation of art is not rational, but rather experiential.
Tom's paintings have a very unique quality. They are vivid, textural and luminous. The magic is that Tom creates his own paints. They contain raw oils and resins but also luminescence an metallics.
Tom has a very creative method for his commissions to maintain his creative consciousness. He believes that art taps into an expansive beauty. He paints in a flow state, painting several paintings rather than a single painting.
Art is not a thing, it is a way.
Art is more than a financial investment, it is a belief in the artist. Tom's inherent ability to compose an image,
his use of color, contrast and space is exceptional. I purchased several of his paintings - a diverse collection.
