Description

Tom Mueske is a graduate of The University of Northern Iowa. He is now attending the San Francisco Art Institute where he is working towards a Master of Fine Arts degree in painting.
Tom says this about his work:<br>"My recent works explore the possibility of transforming two-dimensional elements of painting, such as gestures and marks, into three-dimensional objects. By isolating marks or brushstrokes and removing them from the context of the picture plane, I emphasize their arbitrary qualities, their weakness and emptiness. In my paintings, this pathetic gesture is essentially turned in on itself once again. The enamel paintings combine many different strategies of painting which are then democratized with a black outline."
