Tom Reilly MFA '10


Tom Reilly says, “The focus of my work is to translate people, places and things into paint.  I think of paint as a medium of fossilization of all that we witness empirically and psychologically. Whether the subject is banal or exotic, I want to create an experience that cannot be ignored. Like the visual gravity a stage has, I need my paintings to be large enough to fully encompass the viewer’s field of vision.  The clarity of space and objects in the painting come to varying degrees of realization as they emerge from and retreat into the reality of paint.”

Tom received a BFA in painting and printmaking from SUNY Purchase, New York. He is working as an exhibitions installer / carpenter at the Yale University Art Gallery and  hanging art at the Westport Arts Center in Westport, CT .

He has a Studio at the Erector Square Building in New Haven and will participate in the City Wide Open Studios.
