by R. Tom Gilleon

“Abstract shapes tend to dominate my work,” offers Tom Gilleon, “rectangles, triangles, circles and squares. Even when I paint a figure, especially one with a headdress, the focus is generally on the shape the headdress creates.  In this case, it is just the opposite; it’s the man’s profile that really grabbed me. In fact, I cropped off the edge of the feathers on his headdress in the painting so they wouldn’t distract from his face. Handwritten on the back of the old photograph was ‘Lakota, Pemmican’ so I’ve always assumed that was this fellow’s name. This painting is about the years, the miles, the knowledge, the experience, the sorrow, the pride and the joy etched in this man’s face that was his life.”

The Hostiles
by Frank C. McCarthy

The mid-1800s brought a great surge westward which aroused and antagonized the Native American tribes whose land was being violated and whose staff of life, the buffalo, was being exterminated. The Indians relentlessly attacked the endless wagon trains, the crews laying the railroad tracks, the pony express riders, the men stringing telegraph wires and the lone prospector seeking hidden mineral wealth on the Indian's sacred grounds. Warring bands waiting silently on high ridges and outcroppings would receive smoke signals from their scouts, whereupon they would descend in full fury upon the unsuspecting trespassers.

The Hostiles is a McCarthy classic, in subject and composition. The rugged land is as much a central character as the Indians who aggressively defend it. The prominent, rocky ledge emphasizes the powerful position of this band, and the point man in particular. Available now as a Fine Art Giclée Canvas, The Hostiles embodies the spirit of defiance in the face of all challengers both visible and anticipated.

Buffalo Robe Signal
by Frank C. McCarthy

Frank McCarthy is renowned in the minds of western art enthusiasts for capturing the essence of Shakespeare’s “Cry Havoc, and let slip the dogs of war.” Yet, just as often as he depicted a band of warriors charging Out of the Windswept Ramparts, it was a single dramatic figure or dynamically designed landscape (through which a silent war party passed) that provided the “action” we associate with McCarthy’s work. Buffalo Robe Signal is such a piece. Other than the flourish of the robe, the flaring of nostrils and the mane on the horse, these men are not a drawn bowstring waiting to be unleashed. Nonetheless, the tension builds and we complete the entire story ourselves.

This is why Frank McCarthy is the Dean of Western Action.
