Tom McGrath (artist)
Tom McGrath (born 1978 in New Milford, Connecticut, United States), is an artiste based in New York City, USA. He customary his BFA from Cooper Union in 2000 and his MFA from Columbia University in 2002.
McGrath's painterly subjects often imply a distressing vantage narrowing and a windshield-like analogy along with painting, surface and picture. His imagery evokes romantic road-trip, scenic overlooks, optical blind-spots, landscapes of "fly-over" country, nocturnes of Los Angeles and urban sprawl. The behave seems to be depicted from the tilt of a car passenger, a tourist, a commuter, or a pedestrian. His doing uses contradictory painting mannerisms filtered through landscape images of both an iconic cultural lineage and a generic naturalism.
His perform is included in the public collections including, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Yale Gallery of Art, New Haven, The Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, CT, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS, The Art Bank Program, U.S. Department of State, Washington D.C., The Orlando Museum of Art, Orlando, FL, The Flint Institute of Arts, Flint, MI, and The Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, Purchase, NY.
