Driving In The Rain… Photorealistic Paintings by Gregory Thielker

Posted on: December 1, 2009

I think everybody has one genre of art that calls to them more than others, and for me it’s photorealism because it makes me nostalgic in a way that actual photographs can’t.  These paintings by Gregory Thielker transported me straight away back to Sunday family drives in the country and Christmas shopping trips into town as a  small child, and in more recent years, comfortable silences on the long drives toward and away from lost weekends.

These make me want to say surreal realism. They are amazing and I wouldn’t want to know how long they take to paint. This series also reminds me of paintings by Ralph Goings http://www.ralphlgoings.com/ because they all have very similar subject matter.

What size are these paintings?

Hey I posted about Ralph Goings recently: https://notbeige.wordpress.com/2009/11/23/ralph-goings-four-decades-of-realism/

As for the size of these paintings, they seem to vary, some are 11×14″, 36×48″, 24×24″
