Tom Savage's paintings constantly delight my eye with shocked surprise, morphing, as they do, from a meandering messiness to an all but elegant magnificence, almost allowing me to see them as they are being formed. This guy teaches me to see!

Please join us for the opening reception of Love Notes From the West, esteemed painter Tom Savage's first solo show in Australia. Tom has created four large scale paintings that will be exhibited for the first time at TWFINEART.
The Los Angeles Times critic David Pagel has described Savage's works as "raw, incoherent, precarious and daring. At the same time, they're confident and desperate, riddled with deep doubts but also profoundly self-assured."
Born November 28, 1953, Tom Savage is a contemporary American painter based in California whose work appears in museum collections and has been exhibited in major cities throughout the United States. His abstract paintings and drawings take a historical cue from post-war European automatism and surrealism, and the influence those movements had on abstract expressionism.
