THOMAS MCALEER, Painter PleinAir oil
Tom is a plein air painter who paints daily despite the inclement New England weather. This prolific painter's focus is on the process described as a quick therapy session that helps refocus on the daily rhythm of life and how it relates to nature.Not only does he drawer inspiration from nature but also from the outsider artists from Top Drawer Art at the brass right here in Warren. Tom's role as administrator from birth to national attention, feels this experience has had significant impact on his work. "The speed of his process translates into a palpable sense of movement in his work.The branches of the trees are blowing, and the yellow line in the middle of the road is about to glide off the canvas.Even the houses he often chooses are about to take flight. Tom's paintings are as buoyant as his personality done with quick deliberate strokes often while dancing to urban rhythm and blues, rap, and hip hop.
