"This is almost a dream state, but it doesn't necessarily have to be a dream. I'm trying
to evoke a feeling or an emotion, as opposed to a specific incident. No matter what I
choose to do, I want it to be exciting and beautiful. I love to create and give myself
--- Thomas Blackshear II
Both critics and collectors have been impressed with Thomas Blackshear's ability to
capture a wide range of subjects with power, elegance, and integrity. With his own
vision, he continues the grand tradition of such masters of 20th century narrative
realism as N.C. Wyeth and Howard Pyle.
In Swan Song, Blackshear's
first Greenwich Workshop limited edition print, a strong Native American figure faces
the sunset. In the nobility of his bearing, he symbolizes the pride of his people's
history and traditions - a history that has changed forever with the coming of
European settlers. "I titled this Swan Song," explains
Blackshear, "because it symbolizes the end of a way of life on the Great Plains."
Blackshear takes his symbolism one step further by giving the swans of this song
visible form. He uses their flight to represent feelings of hope and freedom that the
Plains Indians' fate could not destroy." I wanted to do something with a Western theme,
but with a different slant," Blackshear explains, "...something fantastic and beautiful.
I made the swans and Indian darker than the sky," Blackshear says. "That way you notice
the pattern they make against the sky, instead of seeing the light reflecting on them. I wanted to keep
it exciting and beautiful, but still with a feeling of silhoutte."
Thomas Blackshear's evocative Swan Song, an allegory
for the end of an American era, is his first fine art print and celebrates his joining the
Greenwich Workshop family of artists.
