In his Pop-inflected prints, drawings, illustrations, paintings, and design work Tom Slaughter exudes a love of life. He makes few distinctions between his various artistic endeavors; “I paint, draw, cut paper, use a computer, and even an iPhone—it’s all the same hand,” he says. In a 2001 print series, Slaughter reveals his contemplative side, with brushy, greyscale renditions of trees, such as Three Trees, which features spare, silhouetted tree trunks that contrast with the raucous vitality of other works like The Old Neighborhood (2001). Small bursts of leafy foliage are graceful adornments, and the image is given an intimately small scale on the page. Slaughter cites Lichtenstein, Warhol, and Calder as influences on his practice.
