“ONE OF THE BASIC PRINCIPALS OF ART IS THE ABSENCE OF LYING. IT MEANS CREATING GREATER VISION AND GREATER SANITY. WHEN BASIC GOODNESS IS NOT EXPRESSED WHAT YOU DO IS NEUROTIC AND DESTRUCTIVE. THIS MEANS THAT AN ARTIST’S PRODUCTION, MANIFESTATION, DEMONSTRATION AND PERFORMANCE SHOULD BE GEARED TO WAKING PEOPLE UP FROM THEIR NEUROSIS.” Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Through the use of acrylic paint and glaze, Tom Acevedo shines a spot light on the dark places of our Psyche, beautifully. Influenced by Caravaggio and de Boulogne’s desire to include the viewer, Tom also incorporates tromple L’oeil as an interactive story telling tool.

Toms subjects convey a Masculine vulnerability and a poise in calamity while his purpose is to paint a moment in time when the spirit of consciousness is pure. Those moments can come not only in the best of times, but as in life, the most challenging of times as well. While Toms motivations may be deeply personal, the trials of any life, the beauty of each day, and burdens, are universally felt and understood. Thomas Acevedo
