Painter

James Tormey

Born in Brooklyn, NY, James Tormey resides in Manhattan where he has worked for more than 35 years. His pieces have been shown in the U.S., Europe and Japan and are in many public and private collections. Tormey combines traditional subject matter with a contemporary interpretation, creating images of heroic proportions as light, reflected and transmitted, evokes clarity of vision and delight in the forms of the natural world. He says, “I offer paintings of simple, natural objects in sharp detail, painted in a larger-than-life scale. This arrests the viewer’s attention and raises his awareness to a higher level. In this state of increased sensitivity, there is a keen appreciation of the natural world and the beauty to be found therein.”

“In my work I offer paintings of simple, natural objects in sharp detail. All the paintings are executed in oils on fine canvas. They are painted in a “larger than life” scale. This presentation arrests the viewer’s attention, and in doing so takes his or her level of awareness to a higher level. In this state of increased sensitivity, there is a keen appreciation of the natural world and the beauty to be found therein.”
