Tom Glover’s art is reflective of the seacoast where he lives, places he has traveled over the years, and the influence of his teacher John Laurent. Passed on to Tom from Laurent were the techniques and ideas of Walt Kuhn, the influences of Marsden Hartley, Richard Diebenkorn, Robert Motherwell; and the Great Masters who Laurent urged Tom to go see “in the flesh”. Glover followed the advice and traveled throughout Europe to see paintings at the Louvre, the Uffizi, the Prado, the Reina Sofia, the VanGogh museum, the National Gallery in London, the National Gallery of Ireland, the Vatican, and the churches of Rome.

Color is the main thrust in Glover’s work and he uses techniques such as glazing and juxtaposing complementary colors to create intense contrasts and tensions. These are the direct lessons of Laurent and the study of diverse artists such as Matisse, Bonnard, Monet, Porter, Avery, Diebenkorn, and others.

Glover also has gone on several retreats and residencies. He spent a week alone on the White Islands of the Isles of Shoals with no potable water, electricity, or communication–a time he cherished! He was part of an Arts Week on Great Spruce Head Island, the family summer home of painter Fairfield Porter and his brother Eliot Porter, the famed photographer. He was able to use Fairfield’s easel and roam the island for a week. He was an artist in Residence on Appledore Island recently and has made many sojourns to Europe; Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island; the jungles of Costa Rica; New Mexico and Arizona; Block Island, Monhegan Island, Acadia, and many other nooks and crannies of the New England coast. Not to mention the mountains and lakes region where he has summered since birth on lake Massasecum. ​
