Detail of deeply textured painting by Thomas Coffey

Thomas Coffey makes paintings that approach his surroundings with a poetic sensibility, negotiate a daily sense of distance and dislocation, and draw close to his subject matter through tactile material. His paintings share his own sensory and emotional experience of his environment: atmospheres that can be joyful, overwhelming, frantic, peaceful, dislocating, or some combination of these all at once.
