Very rarely do I ever find non-objective art that inspires my own work. Tom McNease is an abstract artist who uses acrylics througout most of his work. Born in 1946, McNease’s career is centered in Lousiana. Unlike the other artists I’ve researched Tom Mcnease is not as well known. He has been in many exhibitions but, many of them have been exhibitions outside of well known cities.
Instead of an artists statement on his website McNease simply jumbles together all of his acrylic paintings onto one page. Using bright colors, high contrast, shading, and various brushstrokes he is able to create loud, almost electrifying works.
