I have no doubts that this collection of paintings will permanently place him in that pantheon of brave and talented painters who have distilled a distinct and compelling aesthetic message from nature. Without propagandizing, but armed with the intent to seek truth, the artist is a messenger as he expands and clarifies our understanding of the world. Among the best, Thomas Quinn has produced a body of magnificent paintings that, along with bringing us singular pleasure in their beauty, also testify to what is at stake if nature and we are to endure.

Thomas Quinn lives and paints on the northern coast of California. He is a regionalist who disciplines himself to a limited palette and a limited focus toward local subjects plants and animals that are entirely familiar to him. This intimacy with the daily behavior, attitudes and intelligence of the wild ensures veracity as well as a willingness to dignify the lives of common creatures. Sometimes, Quinn says, the paint can transcend the flat surface of the canvas, and the result assumes the elusive quality of a wild thing. Quinn graduated with distinction from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. He has had exhibits at galleries and museums around the country. He is the author of The Working Retrievers (9781558217676), a large, handsome volume, written in an exceptional narrative style, now considered a classic on the subject of field retrievers.
