Night

An original artwork from Thomas Wharton. 32x32 // oil on linen.

Comments on the painting from Wharton:

In designing a painting, I try to find ways of creating time in the piece. Time is the element that music has that painting doesn’t. Music lives in time. In painting it needs to be created by building into the image or the actual paint application, something that invites the person viewing it to spend time with it. There are many ways of doing it—things like surprise, a sensual use of color, startling contrasts, or something that awakens the viewer’s curiosity. “Night” is designed to be like the experience of coming into a dark room, where it takes time for your eyes to adjust and see clearly what’s around you. As I tend to want to paint well-defined images in my work, this one is a departure for me. The softness of the atmosphere, the loose paint application, and the veiled forms only come together because of the arm.
