Preston Trombly


For a number of years I worked as a composer, performer and conductor. Those experiences influence and enrich my current work in the visual arts.
All of my work reflects my responses to the experiences of contemporary life, and to the actual materials with which I work.
In these recent
paintings I have combined elements of drawing and painting together. Each work maintains the essential fluidity of drawing, while utilizing the mass and volume available in painting to capture the fleeting temporal moments of motion and energy of life, and the art-making experience itself.
