Tony Mose, Artist
Fifty years of who I am is on every canvas. I have an uncanny talent for storing images in my mind and recalling the image as well as the story I thought it was telling. The image can be anything from a woman at the bus stop to a couple at a restaurant, or a neighborhood where all the houses are identical except for each individual owner’s eccentricities. A large amount of my work is untitled except for an ongoing and evolving, “coronation series”. It is the patron or viewer’s discretion to pick up where I left off and create their own story in which the painting lives on through them. As an artist I have not limited myself to one subject. I paint what inspires me after I put down the first stroke on a blank canvas. My figurative work has been inspired by my continuous contemplation that everyone has a story and I find it interesting how everyone’s daily agenda is related to their story. I feel like it is part of my profession as an artist to inspire others, looking forward to seeing you at the gallery.
