Brady’s painting style has changed and progressed over the course of his thirty year career. Pictured here is a painting from 1985 titled “Kero”. We see the beginnings of Brady’s dissection into mark making. This painting is more reminiscent of his current pastels, which we now see that over time his paintings have become much more broken down, abstract and thick with paint.
Simultaneously Brady’s subject matter has mostly remained consistent rooted in the traditional elements of realism or naturalism. Not illusionistic realism but realism in the sense of the mundane or everyday. A rejection of romanticism. Common laborers, and ordinary people in ordinary surroundings engaged in real activities as subjects of his work.
Years ago I coined the term “New American Realist” to describe Tom’s work. I still feel that it rings true today as he continues to focus on everyday scenes of workers, people in diners, and rural landscapes. In essence romanticizing the real America, the bourgeois, the working class.

I’m not even a massive fan, but even I can’t deny the Rocky vibes were stupidly fun! 🥊
