About Thomas Paquette

Thomas Paquette

My recurring subject is the natural world, unavoidably, because it astonishes me daily. It teaches me, too. For instance in geology the slow crushing and grinding of plates informs my own approach to the layers of paint that I make come and go. In weather, biology, and geography, I find ample templates for painting to get at something vital, something more essential than the mere look of the subject. Too, it is irrelevant how much time these processes take. Most important is that the vitality of my interest in the subject and the painting should move the viewer in a similar way, even if it takes years to hone the painting to that point. I work to grow and evolve paintings, that they may flower even at great distances from their source, in very different eyes. A landscape painting is an ancient story re-experienced.

Biography

Thomas Paquette was born in Minneapolis in 1958. Early influences were met on the walls of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, where Inness, Moran, van Gogh, Bonnard and a host of other artists left their lasting impressions. His penchant for travel also formed early. Family trips that spanned many weeks traveling by car from coast to coast, developed in his late teens and twenties into several months-long solo vagabonding trips via rail and hitch-hiking, which only expanded his thirst for adventures in geography.

Paquette eventually graduated summa cum laude with a BFA in Painting from Bemidji State University when he was twenty-six. He has painted full-time since receiving his MFA degree in Painting from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville three years later, which he attended on full graduate fellowship. He is the recipient of awards and honors including artist residencies at the American Academy in Rome, at the Aegean Arts and Cultural Exchange (Greece), and at three U.S. national parks (Acadia, Yosemite, Rocky Mountain). He was awarded a three-year residency-fellowship from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, in Miami. Paquette completed commissioned works for public and corporate collections including Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, Queen Mary II, and the States of Minnesota, Montana, Maine. His paintings have been selected to hang in nineteen U.S. embassies on five continents, including the cities of Rome, Brussels (NATO permanent collection), Athens, Vienna, St. Petersburg, Moscow, Taipei, and Santiago. Paquette has lectured about his work across the country as well as in Greece, Wales, and England.

Paquette's landscape paintings have been featured in more than fifty solo exhibitions in museums and prominent galleries in New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Minneapolis. In 2014-2015, his solo exhibition of wilderness paintings "On Nature's Terms" traveled to art museums in California, New York and Indiana (the Wildling Art Museum, Quick Center for the Arts, and Evansville Museum of Art and Science). Other solo museum exhibitions of his paintings were mounted at Erie Art Museum, Georgia Museum of Art, The Rockwell Museum, and Westmoreland Museum of American Art.

Paquette's current solo museum exhibition, "America's River Re-Explored – Paintings of the Mississippi from Source to Gulf" traveled from the Minnesota Marine Art Museum in 2018, to Watermark Art Center, and the Dubuque Museum of Art in 2019. His work is represented by T. H. Brennen Fine Art in Scottsdale, AZ; Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia, PA; Groveland Gallery in Minneapolis, MN; and Meibohm Fine Arts in East Aurora, NY.
