RICHARD TOMLIN

The Figure and Unknown Places
July 7 – July 27, 2018
Reception: Thursday, July 12, 2018 6-8 PM

In his whimsical, vivid watercolor paintings, artist Richard Tomlin revisions domestic scenes from the mid-twentieth century.  Often utilizing foreshortening, Tomlin’s tilted picture planes are layered with playful art deco furnishings in vibrant shades of magenta, butterscotch and cerulean. The artist captures diverse interiors with attention and care, toying with line, form, and perspective to render everyday scenes with endearing humor.

Tomlin’s Art Deco Vibrance captures a slice of luxurious domesticity from a bygone era. Shag carpeting and an ornate lamp are accented by a clean, modernist painting to create a space that is richly textured and brightly ornamented. In Art Deco with Muntz T.V., Tomlin uses complimentary hues of bright blue and saturated yellow to imagine a quintessentially American interior complete with a 1940s style Muntz brand television. The composition is playfully foreshortened to give the comfortable, homey scene a sense of playful vigor. Finally in Black Piano & Green Vase at the Theatre, the artist flattens his composition, rendering the architectural details of an elegant interior space with stark lines and subtle shading.
