Thomas Broadbent
"The Golden Chain" contemporary surrealist animal painting, sea turtle and heron

2022

About the Item

A great blue heron rides atop a large sea turtle with a gold linked chain loosely looped around. Elements of the sea are positioned around with seaweed and a dark brown bottle. This watercolor painting is a naturalist style in great detail, with the feathers of the bird meticulously rendered, and the turtle's shell pattern equally detailed. Thomas Broadbent's unique pairing of animals in situ with a designer's sensibility gives this painting a contemporary surrealist quality. 30"x22" watercolor on paper, signed on reverse by the artist, please inquire about framing options. Thomas Broadbent has shown extensively throughout the U.S. as well as internationally. Broadbent’s work won the Pulse Prize for best solo booth at Pulse Art Fair. His work was subsequently featured in “Mission to Space” at the Children’s Art Museum in Manhattan. His nine-foot long “Lunar Mosaic” painting hangs in the American Consolate building in Moscow. His work is in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Broadbent’s numerous solo exhibitions include the Visual Art’s Center of New Jersey, Croxhapox Gallery (Gent, Belgium) Voorkamer Gallery (Lier, Belgium) Inspace gallery (Beijing, China) and the Newark Arts Council. Broadbent’s work has been reviewed in The New York Times, The New Jersey Star-Ledger, NY Arts, The Brooklyn Rail and numerous other publications.
