Intimacy Anniversary Edition on Canvas  Giclee On Canvas

NOTES: "Intimacy is all about revealing one's inner self to others. The mask represents the face most people show the world. I lightly colored this mask to further allude to the fact that this is really a 'made up' version of who this person really is. Her robe represents the outer shell most people show as their public self. I use flat colors and geometric shapes on the robe to symbolize the removing of the staid self. The warm skin and the curved shapes of the jewelry reflect the organic and fluid self. "The decorative flower motifs in the background are very reminiscent of the work of Gustav Klimt and symbolize the hidden garden of emotion that is inside us all. My intention was to create an 'everybeauty,' so I deliberately painted her with golden skin and green eyes. I wanted to make sure she was not clearly of one race or background.".

Intimacy Anniversary Edition  Giclee On Canvas by Thomas Blackshear  is signed by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Thomas Blackshear bio

THOMAS BLACKSHEAR II, the son of an Air Force captain, was born in Waco, Texas, and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. "Drawing was all I ever liked to do," he says. "While all the other guys were playing baseball or basketball, I was in my house, drawing." He pursued an interest in art throughout high school, securing a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago. After a year there, he transferred to the nearby Academy of Art. While finishing his college education, he was recruited by Hallmark Cards and later became the apprentice of illustrator Mark English.

Blackshear settled in Kansas City, where he became head illustrator at the prestigious Godbold/Richter Studio. A year later, he began a prosperous freelance career, illustrating many advertisements, several U.S. Postal Service stamp collections—one called "Black Heritage," another on classic movies, and a third on jazz musicians—and several series of Hamilton Group collector s plates featuring scenes from Star Wars, Star Trek, and The Wizard of Oz. Although he was successful, he was dissatisfied and decided to pursue a career in fine art.

Blackshear has received many awards for his artwork, including the Society of Illustrators coveted Gold Medal. He was profiled on The Living Canvas, an art magazine of the airwaves that was shown on public television, and he has been featured on the Ebony/Jet Showcase and The 700 Club, and in The Saturday Evening Post. An exhibit of his original works for the Black Heritage stamp series premiered in 1992 at the Smithsonian s National Museum of American History and subsequently toured the United States.
