“Art has become an obsession on leisure and comfort.  To find the little niche of an object of beauty, that radiates these qualities, is a fascination of a life time for me.  The way that my hands mold material that once were left as having no value, then becomes worthy of display.  It goes beyond the mere conceptual statement that something is worthy as art.  The mystery lies for me in the conscious act of infusing the particles of meaning directly into the raw material at hand.  The fact that such things as odd wood chips and springs and plastic paint can hold meaning is stunning amazement.  The fact that my pure conscious dreaming mind can be manifest into such materials is a miracle of this natural world we live in.  I find that meaning in life comes directly from this experience, the act of sitting still enough to listen and see, and the act of creating that vision to share with others.  This is true modern magic.” Tom Franco 2013



...these are some of the details, often tiny in large paintings, that might go unnoticed when looking at the whole 4'x6' frame. The "33 Years of Being Tom Franco" exhibit at the Firehouse Gallery North in Berkeley, on 1790 Shattuck Avenue, gives everyone a chance to view and acquire some of these gems.

Exhibit runs from April 12 to 30, 2013.
