About the Artist
A graduate of the Swain School of Design and the holder of an MFA from Brooklyn College, AD Tinkham was a founding member of the First Street Gallery in New York. By using weather phenomena as an avenue for the exploration of his own humanity, Tinkham allows us each to explore our own. His work captures the moment of clarity before the rain falls, the high energy before the unleashing of the storm. Tinkham’s paintings reveal that part of the artist that identifies with the calm and the fury inherent in a storm.
Tinkham’s work is subtle by design. He “creates paintings that do what fine art is supposed to do: surpass superficial beauty in a way that is moving and accessible, intelligent and simple,” according to reviewer Katrina Costedio. Tinkham has had several group and one-person shows in Key West, where he lives in the winter, in Nova Scotia where he summers, and in New York and New England. He also had a show in 2011 in Berlin.
