What’s on my wall?

While I have a number of pieces on the walls of my home, my wife’s current favorite is “ViaLambertesca Bicicletta Four Zero.” In 32×51 inches, it hangs at the top of our landing looking down the hall. This piece is available in all three galleries in both 8×12 and 12×18 giclee prints…or framed by arrangement if you are so inclined.

 

 

From time to time, I work the galleries with whom I display. If you are in town, please top by and say hello…

…and if you know of a gallery outside of the Seattle region that might be interested in representing me, please share my site with them.  I’d be keen to explore traditional representation options.

Artists Statement

Tom Saknit, Redacted Photography™ Fine Art Photography

“Were you there, did you read about it, or perhaps it reminds you of a story someone one once told you.” Our memory of places and events is imperfect…sometimes truer-than-true and sometimes less than faithful. With Redacted Photography™ through color, motion and meticulous redaction I play with images and perception to highlight the imprecision of memory…and the joy of romanticized recollection. 

A mixed media artist in the broadest sense of the term, my work begins with a photograph and through a subtle minimalistic approach, end with an impression. The work is a fugue on my fascination with the unreliability of memory and fight for clarity to recall the fleeting moments of a travelers journey. The work is systematically, unflinchingly subjective, referencing recognizable form at it’s basic level and inviting the viewer to fill in the lost spaces that punctuate the canvas.

I have always been drawn to unfinished work and the forms that are created in the transformative (and for me, magical) process that lies between concept and creation. The skeleton of a building under construction…the pieces of cloth on a designers table…Gilbert Stuart’s “Washington,” …Leonardo da Vinci’s “Adoration of the Magi.” As an artist I am driven by the challenge to present an image…a memory… with as little information as possible, while still preserving impression and impact.

In the Pacific Northwest , I currently live and work on pieces which I hope will work for you.
