A note from the artist- Abstracted reality, I feel, refers to my style of painting and how I view the world.
Most of my paintings are very recognizable a sunset, a figure, a boat; but there is a level of abstraction that helps focus on the subject or that helps calm the mind and soul. My paintings are about color and movement and feelings. I want to bring you to a place and let your own mind build the rest of the picture. When I am painting a sky I am floating in the clouds and the colors….when I am painting a landscape, I am walking in the somewhat fantastical scenery that somehow one’s mind can see as real. My work is based in a realistic and abstracted realm. I am torn between the two and yet made whole by the two. The energy of my work seems to bring calm and happiness to the viewer, as it does to me. I am still seeking something that I have not yet attained, but I am loving the direction my work is taking and the meaning it is giving to a life filled with countless mistakes. – Tom Amidon
