Hear this enlightening interview with host Michael Harris and guest artist James Tormey. Hear about Mr. Tormey's wonderful and unique art, his motivation and passion for his art, his artistic process and his thoughts about art and it's role in our lives. James Tormey is a professional artist who lives and works in NYC. James has shown his work both in the U.S. and abroad and has exhibited his art on Madison Avenue for 20 years. Born in Brooklyn, NY, James Tormey resides in Manhattan where he has worked for more than 35 years. His pieces have been shown in the U.S., Europe and Japan and are in many public and private collections. Tormey combines traditional subject matter with a contemporary interpretation, creating images of heroic proportions as light, reflected and transmitted, evokes clarity of vision and delight in the forms of the natural world.
He says, “I offer paintings of simple, natural objects in sharp detail, painted in a larger-than-life scale. This arrests the viewer’s attention and raises his awareness to a higher level. In this state of increased sensitivity, there is a keen appreciation of the natural world and the beauty to be found therein.”
