Tom McGrath: Night Vision

Image coming soon.

Painters Greg Lindquist and Tom McGrath discuss their approaches to landscape painting and its place in a world dominated by technology.

Responding to Lindquist's question about how his paintings relate to photography and technology, McGrath remarks: "Technology is everything. Photo-wise, it's the old cliche about Impressionism as the secret child of photo, and Pointillism being the forerunner of process color in printing: Sigmar Polke's dots, Bridget Riley's psy-ops, camouflage, the pixel, inkjets and spray paint. These paintings catch light, maybe freeze movement – I hope. The silhouettes, for instance refer to the look of a photogram, a kind of filmic mood lighting."

Tom McGrath: Profiles in Fugitive Light at Sue Scott Gallery, New York and Greg Lindquist: You Are Nature at Elizabeth Harris Gallery, New York were both recently on view.
