Tectonic Episode Paintings


Art Statement Tectonic Episodes

By Thom Wright

California sits exposed and waits for the next great earthquake of the San Andreas Fault and all of its splinter faults in California.  Tectonic plates deep below push, shove and build pressure in the continental plates that eventually burst and send vibrations across the earth.  We humans at the surface suffer the abstract cataclysm and hope to rebuild on the new map.  My paintings expose the tectonic plates and their vibrations that emanate from the San Andreas Fault of California.
