Oil on canvas
Thomas Whittaker Kidd
Out of a non-objective abstract expressionist painting process, my mind is cleared of expectations so that imagined images can emerge out of automatic marks.
Here my inner playground introduces you to characters bent on progressive pleasure, illuminated by joy and triggered by an expanded sense of possibilities.
New histories are created from old, while gravity yields. Since moving from Boston to Los Angeles, I swim past the breakers. This ocean experience that parallels my painting process takes me beyond a human social reference point to being part of a greater ecosystem.
