Tom has developed a philosophy for his art. Media is of secondary importance: the intelligent use of colors, values, line, mass, edges, space, perspective and proportion are of the greatest essence in communicating ideas and beauty, natural or manmade, that surround us in everyday life. Cameras are tools in his hands; he does not compete with them, he uses them. A camera has its limits; the mind of an artist knows none. Remarks like, “Thank heaven there is still someone who knows how to draw, you can really tell what your looking at!” all help to keep him going. The technical aspect of drawing and illustration are only a part of Tom’s rich background. Tom believes artists should be very knowledgeable and aware of many things: color, design, shades, shadows, proportions, descriptive geometry, perspective, lettering, physiology, sociology, composition, and techniques of all kinds.

The Snite Museum of Art, University of Notre Dame, will feature landscape paintings and an evaporation pool by American artist Danae Mattes, from August 9, to December 6, 2015. These beautiful landscapes are the artist’s personal “maps” of time spent within nature, formal equivalents to the experience of moving through the landscape. She combines “materials and methods that are, in themselves, directly extracted from the earth and which interact in ways that are inherent to their physical properties.” Paintings are created from clay, fiber, and pigments, where shapes, patterns, and forms are revealed over time as pigments drain across sloped canvases and as pools of clay and pigment evaporate. Mattes will also install an evaporation pool within the gallery. Liquid clay will be poured into a clay basin on the gallery floor. As the water evaporates from the clay over days and weeks, the various clays used will create distinct cracking and tonal patterns.
