DESCRIPTION

Kirk Tatom show

Tranquility radiates from Kirk Tatom’s paintings. The artist’s skill and attention to detail are evident in subtle nuances of color and texture which invite the viewer into his peaceful landscapes. His lush and meticulous oils paintings are further enhanced by unique gold-leafed frames hand-crafted by the artist’s father and brother.

Tatom’s style is vaguely reminiscent of American realists of the 19th and 20th centuries. Yet his ability to capture the essence of place is uniquely his own. In his works, realistic forms rest comfortably beneath abstracted skies.

Says the artist, “I find quiet, comforting images in all the places I go to. I take the calm of a place, and I put it in my pocket and carry it back to my studio. The intimate spot, the secret garden - these are the places I want to keep.”

These latest paintings are evidence of Tatom’s admiration of open spaces, and reflections on his travels in Europe and North America.

You're invited to meet the artist on Friday evening, May 28th, from 5-7 pm.
