About Thomas Stratton

THOMAS CHARLES STRATTON


Thomas Charles Stratton (1945- ) is an American realist whose paintings convey the simple beauty found in everyday subjects. His emotive works depict serene landscapes, everyday occurrences and common humanity, deliberately avoiding the artifacts of modern life. His artwork has been exhibited in galleries throughout the northeastern United States and in Canada, and can be found in the collections of many individuals and institutions.

Stratton makes his home in New York's mid-Hudson River valley. The area's great natural beauty has influenced his subject matter, as has his extensive travel and work experience on the New England coast and north into eastern Canada. Stratton's paintings recall a style reminiscent of Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper. His subjects, always of a common nature, have a dignity that stems from a sense of timelessness. Their emotional flavor is seasoned by the use of light derived from a pallet of earth tones and purples.

Watercolor has been Tom's primary medium throughout much of his career (he first picked up a brush at the age of five), and he is a master of the genre. He also works in oils and acrylics, and as a mature artist, has shifted primarily to the latter medium, achieving an enhanced depth of emotion that is both confident and empowered.

Stratton is a graduate of the State University of New York at New Paltz (B.S., 1967; M.S., 1970), a former art teacher, and a member of the Arts Society of Kingston, Ulster Artists Online, and Trout Unlimited. His extensive body of work is a legacy and testimonial to all that is Americana.
