In this solo exhibition of works from his "Sketchbook Series " Thomas Broadbent selects principal concepts and ideas from his private ar tists' log and heightens his focus to get to the core of their complex mean ing. His detailed watercolors and drawings question the utility of each com positional component and are presented in such a manner to disengage and re -present their perceived use.

Broadbent's new works on paper in corporate trompe l'oeil representations of seemingly unrelated objects and scenes\, which allude to existentialistic ideas and create sophisticated as sociative meaning within each piece. The large scale watercolors he present s succinctly capture the illusive quality of sketchbook thoughts. His sensi tivity to color\, tactility\, and structure propel these thoughts into real ity\, while maintaining a key tie to illusion and metaphor.
