Tom Nelson has been painting and exhibiting work throughout New York and nationally for forty years. This new body of work compares paintings from two regions of our nation 3,000 miles apart: the Catskills and the Vasquez Rock formations east of Los Angeles, California. Nelson uses a differential comparison to highlight environmental, historical and social issues as well as the aesthetic ideals of the Hudson River School and its role in defining these very same issues.
