Art Attack

Zachary Thornton

Emerging artist, Zachary Thornton, is making an impact great American art. His "work deals with memory and sentimentality, nostalgia and longing, sexuality and the mystery of personality." Thornton truly uses his inspiration from t
he contradictions of idealized suburban life: the emptiness of its expanses, its facade of cheery perfection, its denuded landscape and looming darkness, and its touching sadness to create wonderful works of art.

This, by far, is my favorite of Thornton's intricate work. He is indeed inspiring for artists like myself. I should be working on some painting right now; however, I find myself posting a new blog.

An Artful Affair
