Artwork

A lone shadow of a person sitting at the edge of his seat reading a book. The painting embodies the feeling of being delightfully immersed while the world sleeps. "This painting is a celebration of the sort of book that keeps you up at night for the right reasons," artist Keith Thomson states. The bright yellow light from the window provides a stark contrast to the cool blues and blacks around it signifying deep slumber, all viewed from an outside perspective. "As Nora Ephron put it, 'The state of rapture that occurs when I read a wonderful book is one of the main reasons I read, but it doesn’t happen every time, or even every other time, and when it does, I’m truly beside myself with joy.'"

Keith Thomson

Birmingham, Alabama

Keith Thomson is a mixed-media artist whose art is packed with wit, humor, and ingenuity. He began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 90’s, a background that is reflected in the sharp storytelling of his artwork. His portfolio relishes in the escapism offered by art; each painting, though realistic in style, presents a scenario with a surreal and, at times, ironic twist. To begin a work, he sketches out his idea using an animation software. Then, he transfers the sketch onto the canvas and finally starts to layer oil paint. In addition to painting, he writes spy novels and nonfiction articles.

This piece reflected much of the past year, 2020, to me. In it I saw an individual stopping briefly to do what is needed to keep going through the darkness. Its simple and powerful in that regard, I suppose that's the power of art.
