- Name: painter
- Location: Florida, United States
I mean by a picture, a beautiful romantic dream of something that never was, never will be - in a better light than any light that ever shone - in a land that no-one can define or remember, only desire - and the forms divinely beautiful" - Edward Coley Burne-Jones Thomas Groth is an uncommon figure artist. A classically trained draftsman, Groth works in pastel, oil, charcoal or prismacolor. His paintings recall the lush colors and figure work of the Pre-Raphaelites. The figures exist neither in the past nor the present; they are archetypes occupying a timeless world. Here is a world of tranquility, harmony, dreams and dreamers. Figures of sensuous innocence live here - geishea, mermaid, angels and daydreamers. The art bids one to stop for a moment, to push pause and then move on refreshed-a respite in an often overloaded, time-poor world. Groth's references points are primarily late 19th and early 20th century painters and movements including J.W. Waterhouse, Robert Henri, the Pre-Raphaelites, the Newlyn School.
