About Thom

Thom Surman focuses in his work on the natural elements earth, sky, and water.

His paintings are intended to record the interactions and constant fluctuation between these elements, blurring the divide of landscape painting and abstract fields of color. He is interested not in static scenes but to create a movement of light and color, within a single painting or across a series of paintings.

Surman works exclusively in oil, applying a great many layers of varying opacity onto canvas ‘in no particular order.’ The resulting images that constantly changes in different lighting conditions. In this way he hopes to provide the viewer with a different experience of the landscape.
