Welcome New Artist Tom Gnagey

 

Primitive as used in art = simple, most basic elements, unembellished essence, unpretentious, representation with no intention of being absolutely precise in replication or depiction, rustic.

Frontier, as used in the present context, refers to the old west in United States history.

With that in mind, my Frontier Primitives can be considered the simplistic replication of structures out of the old west – set in miniature dioramas for those who enjoy and appreciate the soundness of concept and the approximation of substance.

Using the signature name, Thomas D, I come to the creation of this ‘art’ form from 75 plus years of pursuing painting and sculpture as an amateur (well, make it 70 plus, since my earliest ‘work’ was less recognizable than what I’m going for, here). Most recently I have been a writer with nearly 100 novels and many hundreds of short stories in my bibliography*. The idea for this project grew out of a series of books I have been writing for ten to fourteen year olds, set in 1880’s Kansas in the small, fictional town of Red Bend**. As I researched and worked to construct covers for the books, I fell in love with the architecture of the era and locale. As the streets and byways in and around Red Bend began to take shape in my mind’s eye I could see they were destined to be preserved in something more than descriptive prose.

So, Frontier Primitives, by Thomas D. were born. They won’t be everybody’s cup of tea, but the ground swell of interest prompts me to make them available in very limited quantities. http://www.frontierprimitives.com/
