TOM STELLA

Cadences of Color
July 5 - July 25, 2014
Reception: Thursday July 10, 2014 6-8 PM

Working purposefully and methodically, American artist Tom Stella might take years to complete one of his exuberantly colorful paintings. Blurring the boundaries of Realism with Expressionism, Stella eschews any one artistic style. Instead, he embraces a richly diverse variety of materials and methods. This allows his compositions to be guided by aesthetic techniques, activating an emotional pulse in each one of his works. The artist concentrates on one subject at a time, an approach that yields a sense of intimacy and confidence with his themes, whether they are portraits of people or places. Stella works from sketches and notes of his subjects, using color to enliven each piece, masterfully blending hues and tones with expert dexterity. “I always have had a profound interest in color since I can remember,” he explains. Like contemporary master Eric Fischl, Stella relies on memories, old family photographs and color to dictate the vivacity and verve of his works.

Tom Stella has exhibited his work throughout the Mid-West, and he lives and works in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
