About Tom Myott
Tom Myott is a man with a passion for experimenting with new ideas and it shows in everything he does. His signature painting style using circles, dots, and dashes was developed over many years from a variety of techniques inspired by such artists as Seurat’s Pointillist works to Chuck Close and his grid system with a smattering of ideas from other Impressionists and Contemporary artists.
But it’s Myott’s love of horses and thoroughbred racing at the Saratoga Racetrack that has been the main focus for many of his paintings for over a decade. The lush vibrant colors and the loose use of his paint strokes combined with the sense of live action create an artistic version of the excitement of being at a horse race unlike any other. It’s this sense of movement and the large powerful visions of muscular horses as the jockeys race around the track in colorful stable colors that has created his large following of racing enthusiasts as collectors for his paintings.
