An original artwork from Thomas Wharton. 29x25 // oil on linen.

Comments on the painting from Wharton:

I like ambiguity in art. This painting is both a portrait and a mystery. Usually portraits present the subject in a way that is clearly posed, or occasionally in something more akin to a snapshot. Either way, there is a sense that the person in the painting is static and removed. There is a wall that prevents direct engagement with them, even if their eyes, as the saying goes, follow you around the room. This painting is like a still image from a movie you haven’t seen. In the pose I selected, he looks directly at you and locks you in his gaze. There is a story that needs to be constructed about what his relationship is to the twilight sky, and I want him to seem to be about to speak. So, I imagine each person will have a different idea of what the story is and what he’s about to say.
