Welcome New Greenwich Workshop Artist
R. Tom Gilleon



Red Bull II
by R. Tom Gilleon

Quite simply, we do not have enough space on this page to properly introduce you to R. Tom Gilleon. He is a contemporary artist with a master’s soul. “I believe,” says Tom, “that simplicity and strength is the key to fine art.” Gilleon’s contemporary approach to traditional subject matter stands out because of his affinity for shape and color in storytelling. Collectors vie for his graphic rendering of tepees and Native Americans.

Red Bull II is a contemporary painting in disguise. It is a series of geometric shapes: a square that contains a triangle within a triangle. The bull painted on the tepee itself is a contemporary graphic. “Such a symbol would not have existed,” says Gilleon. “Their painting was more of a petroglyph style, symbols that got across the basic facts. They didn’t have the tools to paint as we do. I like to believe that if they did have those tools, you’d have seen something like this.”

Two Guns

by R. Tom Gilleon

Two Guns (Two Guns White Calf) was a Blackfeet tribal leader in the early 20th century. He maintained that his visage was used by sculptor James Earle Fraser in the creation of the 1913 Indian Head nickel, although Fraser claimed it was not. More importantly, he was one of the most recognized Native American leaders of his time and used his popularity to travel the world to promote the preservation of Blackfeet heritage.
