Storm Tharp’s Fluid figure paintings.

Portland, Oregon based artist Storm Tharp’s fluid figurative paintings mix ornate patterning with a delicate “happy accidents” style of brush work that make his striking figures seem to be in motion yet completely still. This playfulness of medium creates an unsettling state in the work making each piece psychological portraits of figures who could be real or completely out of the artists imagination.

    Beautiful fluidity. The contrast of loose and tight is intriguing. Ink is tough stuff. Well done.
