Thomas Deaton

Artist + Thomas Deaton

I'm a Louisiana native currently living and working in New Orleans. I'm originally from Lafayette where I received a BFA in printmaking from The University of Lafayette in 2011. After that I decided to make a big change of location and attended grad school at the University of Iowa where I earned an MA and MFA in 2014 and 2015 respectively. I couldn't handle the snow in Iowa City, so upon finishing school I moved back to Louisiana but suddenly found myself without a print shop. For the previous eight years or so I made almost exclusively woodcuts and engravings so I was at a loss for what to do without a printing press when a friend suggested I try my hand at painting.

Painting was always something I admired in an "I could never pull that off" kind of way so it took me a while to ease into it. Once I became confident I found that I could both emulate and break down the types of textures, patterns, and shapes that I could do in my woodcuts while adding new purely painterly elements. At this point I'm not really sure if I'm a printerly painter or a painterly printmaker but I feel good about both.
