About Tom Pirozzoli
“What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject-matter, an art which might be … like an appeasing influence, like a mental soother, something like a good armchair in which to rest….”
When I moved to Boston in the early 1970s, the MFA and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum became my second homes. Art books were devoured; countless sketchbooks and canvases filled. For the next 10 years, travels brought me to Europe, South America, India and East Asia. This visual feast became a journal in watercolor, pen and ink.
Yet travels have always steered me home to my New England roots. The irresistible lure of its distinctive landscape, the elegant simplicity of its architecture and interiors have captivated me for the past 30 years.
While my work as a professional musician has enriched my life, I have never stopped painting. My oils reflect the beauty and purity of all that surrounds me … pull up a good armchair and enjoy!
