Theodore Waddell: Home Pasture

Visions West Contemporary

  • Opening reception: Friday, March 2nd from 6-8pm
Big Sky Angus, 2017. Oil and encaustic on canvas, 120” x 216”

Theodore Waddell’s depictions of the vast landscape, horses, and cattle are not typical of most Western art due to the influence of the abstract expressionist movement on his practice. Home Pastures will include the monumental painting Big Sky Angus as well as works on paper, oil paintings, and various prints spanning the past 30 years.

“I prefer work that is open ended and does not attempt to lead me in a certain way and determine all of the conclusions,” Waddell said. “I want my work to constantly change for me and for those who view it, hopefully it will be different each time I see it as well as for others who view it.”

Waddell was born in Billings, Montana, in 1941 and raised in Laurel, Montana. He studied at the Brooklyn Museum Art School, Eastern Montana College, and Wayne State University. Waddell taught at the University of Montana from 1968 – 1976 and is now a full time artist and rancher. He has had more than 90 solo exhibitions throughout his art career and his art can be found in major museums across the United States.
