Woman in Lavender Dress by Tom Quinn

The unobtrusive simplicity of these paintings by Tom Quinn is what makes them memorable. They share with works by artists such as Gwen John and Eve Quarmby a quality of evanescence: these are images - and affections, experiences, ambitions - which are about to disappear and they are glimpsed, fleetingly, as they go. Pictures such as this offer a commentary about the way we live our lives; too hastily, too thoughtlessly. They require that we should stop and contemplate the poetry of the world.
