Storm Tharp takes his inspiration from a wide- ranging set of influences. The raw content of the work stems from the characterization of human experience, tying his interpretations and results through different styles that he employs. Figurative or otherwise, the work reflects personal history, broader sociocultural distortions, and universal truths. For Converge 45, Tharp has produced large scale monotype prints, which connote ruptured color fields and tantric paintings.
