Featuring Tom Gould
July 7 - August 27, 2023

On the Central Coast, light, air and nature combine to reward our attention. Visual artists/painters are challenged to capture that bounty (to the best of our ability; to the extent that paint on a flat surface can produce).

Tom Gould’s method includes a lot of looking, then photographs to capture a selected image. Next, he relates the proportions of the image or images to the proportions of the canvas by a drawing, followed by the application of acrylic paint (a combination of chemistry and craft).

In order to express the dynamics of the subject, eye, hand, and brush need to merge to follow and express the subject’s dynamic context: surges of seawater, shy vigilance of wildlife, patterns of growth and decline, even steady erosion - a spectrum defined in light, and always changing -

Connections these works are meant to make.
