Merzbau Gallery, Miami and Frameless Gallery, London present Irreverence - Tom Leamon?s first solo exhibition in the United States. On offer is a collection of paintings spanning the last 5 years, works which are both thought-provoking and playful. They are experiments into the deconstruction of the human form, on both a physical and psychological level.
Rooted in mark-making, symbolism, poetry / story-telling and illustration, Leamon?s works often combine meticulous detail with raw abstract painterly gestures. The artist uses painting as a release, and in a quasi-monastic fashion, Leamon locks himself in his studio for long periods of time working and reworking the surface of the canvas. With complete freedom and an enduring willingness to explore, his impulsive, almost childlike painting techniques represent both playtime and profound meditation.
