Tribal Tripartite by R. Tom Gilleon

 
Tribal Tripartite Limited Edition by artist Tom Guilleon

    

 “Tribes on the plains survived by forming alliances, not unlike the nation-states through history,” says artist Tom Guilleon about Tribal Tripartite. “The tipi was very universal in nature, as were the ways of the Plains Indians’ lives. You’d be hard pressed at a glance to know whether one or multiple tribes were present in a village and sometimes something as minor as an entrance flap representing the style of one tribe as opposed to another was needed to determine it. Tribal Tripartite is as much about the shared necessities and influences of Plains’ life as it is color and design.”   

    

Artist Tom Guilleon

R. Tom Gilleon is one of a handful of artists that can look back at 2009 as a year that all the hard work and persistence paid dividends. Not even a month passed in 2009 that an art magazine did not choose him for its cover, run a feature story or review a show. He was the 2009 Jackson Hole Arts Festival’s Feature Artist. In a year that that desirability and potential value drove the art market, owning one of Gilleon’s contemporary western paintings rose to the top of many collectors’ lists.   more
