My name is Thomas Abildgaard.
I enjoy exploring my own fantasy world as it is far more interesting to me than the supposedly real one we inhabit.
I disdain the idea that art should be drawn from life and try to bring my dreams and night mares ino art instead.
I am a semi-self taught/classically trained musician and now I’ve turned my hand to painting. Enjoy.

I prefer abstract-expressionism and neo-expressionism, which I’m sure you can guess at a glance.
As for artists I am particularly enamored with Picasso, Degas, Goya, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Scnabel, Van Gogh, Sam Francis, Jackson Pollock, Willem De Koonig, Lee Krasner etc….

Journal

Got plenty of new pieces to put up.

I’ve got four or five new paintings to put up ( just waiting on camera batteries) and I’m playing around with plaster carving.

Working on some new pieces!

My brilliant picture framer father has acted the patron and has bought me truck loads of paint and canvas, and has even been making the stretcher frames. / I’m currently working on two smaller 50cm x 40cm canvases and will begin on some larger 90cm x 90cm soonish. / I’m slowly getting more and more figurative so I look forward to seeing where I end up with these ones.

Too poor to paint!

While not living in desperate poverty just yet ( as I will be once I’ve moved out), I have really no expendable income. As such I am too poor to paint. If you would like to see once of my paintings on your wall or just want to give me money (haha) it would be very welcome.

Revision

SInce I have had no money for new canvases or paint. I have been revising older paintings that I was unhappy with. They’ll be up tomorrow.
