ROLLIN WITH THE HOMIES
ARTIST STATEMENT BY TOM EVERHART
It seems that I am more easily explained by what I don't have than what I do. The most misunderstood thinking about my work is that I am licensed to create the images that include the copyrighted subject matter that has so influenced me through the teachings of my greatest friend Charles Schulz. I do not have a license and have never had one. But Sparky did make certain to arrange a contract early in the development of the work that permitted me to use the subject for the "term of my life ".
This show, "Rollin With The Homies", was constructed on the sources of inspiration, creative thought and influences. It is a confession of creative thinking and where it comes from. It examines academics, social interactions, and the traditions of painting to produce work that does not look like traditional paintings.
