Thomas Broadbent's solo exhibition of paintings presents a s eries of composed situations that observe fashion and the utility of trends \, from the relative meaning of dress\, to the inference of status from lea ther bound books. Broadbent's new watercolor paintings impeccably represent scenes of positioned components that relay metaphorically meaning through the association of objects within each new work. 

Broadbent’s still lives have a timeless quality\, seeming relating to the turn of the c entury at times. His paintings of shoes\, cocktail gowns\, pants\, and more over\, books and ledgers often incorporate prosaic birds such as chickadees and pidgons. These situational compositions have an uncanny presence\, tha t seems to exist somehow here and there\, past present and future. 
< br /> Broadbent's inherent sense of light\, tone and pallet heighten the pe rceived reality of his compositions. Scale shifts\, fusion of objects and d elusive structures place the viewers themselves within the framework of eac h painting. The scope of Broadbent's new series ranges from introspective c ommentaries to universal truths\; the works in "Chronicle" capture the esse nce of our current place in time\, personal desires\, implied status of obj ects\, and implications of a future utility for those items represented. \n
