Woodward Gallery presents SoHo Flowers to celebrate the New Year at Gourmet Garage SoHo.
Artist Thomas Buildmore is a conceptual and graffiti artist who reconciles old masters paintings in his new body of works. He deconstructs the formal elements of Claude Monet’s still lives of flowers by remarkably maintaining the essence of the 19th century painting, yet all in spray paint! Thomas Buildmore delivers an excitingly current and fresh relevance in these compositions while expressing his own individualistic mythology.
"It’s a much more emotional body of work for me. It’s much more based in the action of the painting and a little bit less concept. Most of my art is conceptually based to a certain degree, along with this. But these, when I paint them, they’re about the feeling of making the paintings."
