For most of his professional life, Thomas Stiltz has worked as an
art director, photographer, and painter. His experience with photography
brings sensitivity to light and form. His strong sense of composition
and picture space, combined with a flair of the dramatic, naturally
lead him to create striking paintings. His purpose is to stimulate
the viewer with feelings and emotion about the common, ordinary
objects of our lives. Thomas Stiltz received his Bachelor of Arts
in painting, and Master of Arts in photography and design from the
University of Delaware.
One painter to influence Stiltz is Cezanne, whose still life's show
devotion to the solidity of objects and form revealed through color.
Stiltz's paintings also reflect the inspiration gained from his
studies of the works of Jan Vermeer. It is apparent from Stiltz's
work, that he is impressed with Vermeer's depiction of the interaction
of light and objects, his emphasis on detail, and the effect of
diffused light on backgrounds and shadows. The paintings of Thomas
Stiltz are created with a devotion to old world techniques, often
using many layers to build up the paint surface. Backgrounds are
glazed with many layers of color for depth and richness, and objects
are rendered with a strong emphasis on naturalism.
