Teare, Brad

Brad Teare
Born 1956 in Moscow, Idaho; lives in Providence, Utah

BRAD TEARE BUILT A SUCCESSFUL CAREER illustrating for publishers such as The New York Times and Random House in New York. His works have been featured in book covers for authors such as James Michener, Anne Tyler, and Alice Walker. While at a Van Gogh exhibit, he discovered his love for impasto. Surprised at the artist’s impact, Teare began exploring texture in his paintings using palette knives. Other influences include William Wendt, Birger Sandzén, and Edgar Payne. In 1994 his aspiration of painting the Western landscape reasserted itself, and he moved to Providence, Utah, a small town in the Rocky Mountains.

Teare prefers to paint from plein air sketches. He then paints larger versions channeling the chaos of the field paintings into his studio work. The process produces color combinations extremely difficult to replicate by painting from photos or imagination.
