Keith Thomson's meticulously realized paintings perfectly conjure a piece of Americana that is both past and present. Thomson depicts naturalistic scenes from everyday small towns: men riding in a truck, chess players in the park, women at the hair salon. His figures have personalities and idiosyncrasies, while their surroundings and actions are timeless. His compositions tend toward documentary-like scenes, as if the viewer were a fly on the wall. Thomson paints with soft, nuanced textures and rich color to create truly stunning worlds.
Thomson was born in Connecticut and currently lives and works in Alabama.
