This year (2014) marks Tom Everhart's 25th year painting Charles Schulz influenced art. For a quarter of a century, his thesis has remained focused. But, his approach has continually evolved in dynamic ways. With each new painting Everhart has pushed into new territory in concept, style and technical approach. It is this drive to explore beyond the obvious that has kept his art as alive and vital as the characters that inhabit it.

After these many years, Everhart has found himself at a place in his artistic career that all artists dream of - a time when a high level of success and recognition for his work has afforded him the freedom to fully express his creative vision.

Arriving at such a place is something Everhart shares with his once mentor and close friend Charles Schulz. By the mid 60's, Schulz had earned a similar creative license through the peaking success of Peanut's. Once there he was able to freely explore. Out of this time came some of the best work he would ultimately produce. And, for his fans, one the most cherished being Snoopy's alter ego, the World War One Flying Ace.

Everhart feels that it's no coincidence that just at the time Schulz was freeing his comic strip to ideas of fantasy, Snoopy took to the sky. It perfectly expressed the freedom of being able to soar above all the earthbound challenges and obstacles.

Everhart's painting 'My Homie Ace' is a celebration of this feeling of freedom the chosen freedom to rise above the terrestrial nonsense that can limit all of us from the lives for which we were meant. He's done this not just by putting Snoopy in the sky as the Flying Ace, but by equally expressing his attitude. Snoopy's head is cocked back, pointing upwards, as he continues to climb higher, with his tooth filled grin of satisfaction. As if to say "Who cares", "Ha!", "I've risen above it all."

 

PUFF DOGGY DOG

PUFF DOGGY DOG

34" x 46" (image 30" x 42")
Mixed media print - (giclee and silkscreening) on deckled paper
Edition 295

With the mountains as a backdrop, the artist represented here by Schulz's character Snoopy, stands on a bike path that runs along Santa Monica beach like a black ribbon. He's gazing to The West, watching the sun drop below the horizon of the vast blue Pacific. Bathed in the warmth of the sun's golden light you can tell he's at peace, he's at home. And yet, all the while he's wearing a giant, puffy, green jacket like a rapper straight out of Brooklyn. How did this East Coast dog find himself so far from home?

Rarely is one painting so significant to an artist's creative journey as is Everhart's painting of Puff Doggy Dog.

From the moment when a young artist picks up that first pencil, crayon or chalk to make their mark; the search for their own creative voice has begun. Along the way there will be no signposts or maps that will lead them. Typically, the only guide is their own instinct. For Everhart, that search in his early years took him to many places; New Haven, Washington DC, Baltimore, Paris and of course New York. But, despite his deep, East Coast roots, Everhart followed his own inner compass, and it pulled him to the West.

Back in the studio from the beach, the work begins -- and inspiration continues. Now, in his new home, Tom would fully embrace every bit of sunshine and beauty that it had to offer. From this, his daily constitutional of riding his bicycle for miles along the beach took root. This ride is always filled with many spectacular sights for an artist to take in. But, there was one in particular to which he always looked forward. If he timed his ride just right, Everhart would be riding underneath the Santa Monica pier just as the mid day sun would shine through the wooden slats above. This created a stunning array of long shafts of light onto the path below But, one day after seeing this countless times, Everhart stopped to study the light more closely.

What he observed would open the door to new way of seeing. It would change his own art forever. He found what he had been searching for...dots. The thin, bright shafts were constructed by dots of light. He realized that the dots were just an optical illusion. But with that, he realized so is everything that we see. And, there it began. Since that time, dots would become the one constant mark that is found in all of Everhart's works of art: Dots that are dripped, drawn, melted, glued, painted, poured, even cut out of the painting itself. And, the first painting to fully take shape from this discovery was Puff Doggy Dog.

Puff Doggy Dog is an artist's celebration shouted from a mountaintop. It's the cry of "EUREKA" at the end of the artistic quest. And, even though it represented the end of a search, it also represented the beginning of its own journey forward.

Mixed media print on canvas
Edition 295

"Do you know the quote from Albert Einstein? 'Creativity is the residue of time wasted.' I believe in it; that's my bible," Everhart stated while doing a gallery walk through with a group of art dealers on the eve of his highly anticipated New York art opening in May. He was presenting, for the first time to the seasoned crew, one of the three key pieces in his new collection of works: Big Poppa.

Like most of Everhart's paintings, Big Poppa is the result of many layers of thought and inspiration, beginning with Einstein's crystalized observation that creativity, inspiration, and even genius, comes from the moments when you step away from your "work" and let your mind relax and wander. We see this very thing happening in this painting, as Snoopy has started to drift to the side and enter into his own state of relaxation.

Often, on those rides, he watches birds flying above the sea in rows that wave up and down in the air as they move along the coast. This significant inspiration made it's way into Big Poppa as rolling waves of colored dots flowing around Snoopy. To Tom, these waves -- in the air with the birds, the winding bike path, and in this painting -- represent rhythm. They are the rhythms of life, the rhythms of caring, the rhythms of love, and the rhythms of pain: "all the things that flow around us as we are living," Everhart explains.

Back in the studio from the beach, the work begins -- and inspiration continues. While painting the works in this collection, his studio was filled with music. Most often he selected songs by Notorious B.I.G. [aka Biggie Smalls] whose song Big Poppa spoke to him profoundly. In the year that Tom painted the large body of work in this coming show, many of his friends became poppas. It was also a year in which Everhart gave a lot of thought to his to those who inspired him, shaped his life, and filled his world. And so, this painting is dedicated to Albert Einstein and Sparky (Charles Schulz), the 'Big Poppas' in Tom's life.

GANG STAR DREAMS

(Charles Shulz)
Snoopy is the Star of his gang. and a bit of a "gangster" as well. He represents the biggest gang Star in Everhart's life, Charles Shulz.

GIRLFRIEND DREAMS

Tom Everhart - Girlfriend Dreams - Homie Dreams Suite - Limited Edition print

(Joan Mitchell )
Joan Mitchell taught Everhart the importance of the mark (an important theme in his own work).

HIPSTER DOG DREAMS

Tom Everhart - Hipster Dog Dreams - Homie Dreams Suite - Limited Edition print

(Philip Guston)
On the day Everhart and Shulz met, neither of them were aware that they were both mourning Guston's recent passing. And at the end of the day when they realized this, it made for a very special connection.

HOME GIRL DREAMS

Tom Everhart - Home Girl Dreams - Homie Dreams Suite - Limited Edition print

(Bridget Riley)
Riley introduced Everhart to the concept of "color sensation," the idea that all of your senses can be overcome just by color alone.

MR. BIG STUFF DREAMS

Tom Everhart - Mr. Big Stuff Dreams - Homie Dreams Suite - Limited Edition print

(Andy Warhol)
Titled Mr. Big Stuff, because Woodstock is a little person with a big punch. But also because he represents Warhol, whose influence on Everhart also carried a big punch, as he caused him to see art differently than it had ever been seen before.

SAMO DREAMS

Tom Everhart - Samo Dreams - Homie Dreams Suite - Limited Edition print

(Jean-Michel Basquiate)
Titled for Jean-Michel's famous tag "Samo". Basquiate's unconventional approach to both his art and his life was something Everhart always admired. And for the choice of Pig Pen...well, the similarities were there.

HOME DREAMS SUITE - It's the time before egos, affectations and societal conventions start to hide our essential selves; when our sense of who we are and what we believe are the clearest; and our creativity flourished with the greatest fluidity we'll ever experience.

It has been said that artists spend their whole lives trying get back to that place because children are the pure artists. That is why the Peanuts characters are the perfect muses for Tom Everhart's profound reflection on creativity and artistic inspiration in his Homie Dreams.

In this stunning series of portraits Everhart has posed Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest as if they have grown bored while posing for the painter and have just started to drift off to sleep. They Try to hold their pose as if they are awake, but yet they float away. Tom explains that he wanted to show them entering into the world of dreams, as he believes that this is the place where all of us (artists or not) creatively grow the most. And that is also why they are all smiling, because they are enjoying their own "happy creative thoughts."

Each of the six portraits in the series represents the dreams of artists and, in some cases, friends who, themselves, have directly affected Tom's own dreams– Including one artist who does not have a portrait but is represented in all six of the paintings. The distinct abstract style of the background is a direct homage to Tom's former neighbor, the painter Sam Francis.

When Shulz drew the Peanuts, his characters often represented people in his own life. And even though we did not know who they were, we always knew someone in our own lives who were a little—or maybe a lot—like them. And that made those characters special and personal to us. Everhart has also done this. He has once again used Lucy, Pigpen and the rest to represent people who hold their own personal importance to him. Even if we don't have our own relationship with those people, we know people in our own lives who have inspired us. That is what these paintings are about—our own creativity, inspirations, friends and dreams.

SUPERFLY SUITE - The creative relationship that Tom Everhart and Charles Schulz shared has no comparable in the world of art. And when Sparky (Schulz) passed away in 2000, Everhart – having lost both his friend, colleague and mentor – found himself searching for something that would replace the life and growth that their profound relationship once provided. That something would be Tahiti.

Everhart, and his wife Jennifer, now spend a third of their year in this Polynesian paradise. There, Tom spends his days painting outside on the same dock their home sits on, surrounded by crystal clear water and emerald green islands dotting the horizon. Tom's immersion in such intoxicating beauty has influenced and inspired his art. And, in the case of the Superfly, that inspiration cannot be more apparent.

While Tom paints in front of their home, his wife Jennifer will often begin her day with a splash as she jumps off from their dock and disappears into the water for hours. And, as Tom works at his easel under the equatorial sun, he often imagines her journey into a color filled paradise – a world where she dives from the top of waterfalls into deep clear lagoons, awash in bright translucent colors, where the tropical heat, itself, seems to drip from the sky above. This is the world of Superfly. Through his controlled style of drip painting, with Snoopy as the playful embodiment of Jennifer, Tom has perfectly expressed this place of beatific color and light.

In these new paintings, Snoopy is doing something we have never seen in paintings by either Everhart or Schulz: he is flipping into the air. With pure exuberance and free of any constraints, Snoopy has taken flight. The choice to set Snoopy so free in this place of fantasy came as a response to a very real situation in Tom and Jennifer's own lives. Together, they faced some dark days over the past couple of years: challenges that can rob you of whatever it is that gets you up in the morning. But once again, as with the passing of Sparky, Tahiti became a place to heal. Instead of letting negativity take Tom into a place of darkness, he chose to do just what we see Snoopy doing in these paintings: fly over them. Correction SUPERFLY over them.

Edition 295

"ARE YOU CRAZY?" Sparky (Charles Schulz) exclaimed when Everhart suggested that he wanted to do a series of paintings that contained hundreds of Woodstocks filling the canvas from edge to edge.

"Woodstock was the essence of Sparky's poetry, and it was his favorite thing to draw," Everhart explains. "Sparky felt his drawings of Woodstock communicated for him best." It was partly his attachment to Woodstock that excited him about Everhart's idea to take on such a challenge.

Schulz thought the idea was radical. "And it was," Everhart adds. But this was the whole thinking behind Everhart's pursuit, and Schulz' vision for him to carry forth his creations into an entirely new context of fine art expression. That it would be, as Everhart calls it, "doing the same thing, but entirely different."

That difference sometimes goes far beyond the stylistic choices. Often, the greater difference is in the things Everhart has chosen to express. At times, these are the big and tough issues. By expressing them through Peanuts, Everhart has been able to speak to these heaviest of subjects through the same prism of light-hearted humor that Sparky once used – even with issues as daunting as the world's growing population.

In this piece (Does This Make Me Look Fat), Everhart has created one of his best examples of this approach. It speaks to the very nature of his own heart and artistic perspective. At first sight of Snoopy wearing a sweater of Woodstocks (a nod to a sweater that Peppermint Patty once knitted for him in the comic strip) we can't stop ourselves from smiling or even laughing out loud. Then, still with that grin on our face, he draws us in a bit further, and we see Snoopy's face. It's familiar. We may not know the whole story, but we can see that there is more to this – something important, something real – and we connect. And then, in a way that only Everhart could pull off, he encourages us to once again smile, but this time it's with the kind of smile that comes from a deeper, meaningful place. The kind of smile lasts forever.

Tom Everhart - BIO

Tom Everhart is the only fine artist educated by Schulz and legally authorized by both Charles Schulz and Iconix to use subject matter from Schulz's Peanuts strip to create fine art.

Tom Everhart was born on May 21, 1952 in Washington, D.C. He began his under graduate studies at the Yale University of Art and Architecture in 1970. In 1972 he participated in an independent study program under Earl Hoffman at St. Mary's College. He returned to the Yale School of Art and Architecture in 1974 where he completed his graduate work in 1976, followed by post-graduate studies at the Musee de l'Orangerie, in Paris. He taught Life Drawing and Painting, briefly from 1979 to 1980, at Antioch College.

In 1980, Tom Everhart was introduced to cartoonist Charles M. Schulz at Schulz's studios in Santa Rosa, California. A few weeks prior to their meeting, Everhart, having absolutely no education in cartooning, found himself involved in a freelance project that required him to draw and present Peanuts renderings to Schulz's studios. Preparing as he would the drawings and studies for his large-scale skeleton / nature related paintings; he blew up some of the cartoonist's strips on a twenty-five foot wall in his studio which eliminated the perimeter lines of the cartoon box, leaving only the marks of the cartoonist. Schulz's painterly pen stroke, now larger than life, translated into painterly brush strokes and was now a language that overwhelmingly connected to Everhart's own form of expression and communication. Completely impressed with Schulz's line, he was able to reproduce the line art almost exactly, which in turn impressed Schulz at their meeting. It was directly at this time that Everhart confirmed his obsession with Schulz's line art style and their ongoing relationship of friendship and education of his line style.

A few years later, while still painting full-time on his previous body of work in his studio, Everhart began drawing special projects for Schulz and United Media, both in New York and Tokyo. These authentic Schulz-style drawings included covers and interiors of magazines, art for the White House, and the majority of the Met Life campaign. When Everhart was not painting, he was now considered to be the only fine artist authorized and educated by Schulz to draw the actual Schulz line.

The paintings using Charles Schulz's comic strip, Peanuts, as subject matter began and replaced the skeleton and nature related paintings in 1988. The inspiration came to Everhart in Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was undergoing several operations for stage 4 colon / liver cancer in the summer of 1988. Everhart recalls lying in a hospital bed surrounded by enough flowers to open a florist shop, piles of art books and a stack of Peanuts comic strips sent to him by Schulz. The light streaming in from the window almost projected the new images of his future Schulz inspired paintings on the wall. All the images in Everhart's work are in some respect derived from Schulz's Peanuts comic strip.

In January 1990 Everhart's Schulz related work went on to show at the Louvre in Paris and subsequently in Los Angeles at the L.A. County Museum of Natural History, Montreal at the Museum of Fine Arts, Tokyo, Japan at the Suntory Museum of Art, Osaka, Rome, Venice, Milan, Minneapolis, Baltimore, New York, Houston, Chicago, Las Vegas, and in Santa Rosa California at the Charles M. Schulz Museum.

In 1991, Charles Schulz and United Media drafted a legal agreement to allow Tom Everhart to use subject matter from Schulz's Peanuts strip in his art for "the term of his life".

In 1992, Pigpen's Dirtballs a 72" x 128" painting was filmed with the artist in progress for the CBS special "The Fabulous Funnies". A series of four lithographs were published in 1996 and a series of four more lithographs entitled, To Every Dog There Is A Season followed in 1997. Over the next ten years S2 Art editions and Tom Everhart would create an astonishing body of lithography work consisting of over seventy-four lithographs.

In 1997, Snoopy, Not Your Average Dog, published by Harper Collins, featured an essay and reproductions of Tom Everhart's Schulz inspired paintings.

An agreement, with Tom Everhart, United Media Feature Syndicate and Peanuts creator Charles Schulz, was signed, in 1997, to grant to third parties licenses with respect to the Schulz inspired paintings to produce up-scale museum type products, and continues in effect to present, with Iconix replacing United Media in 2010.

In 2000, his first solo museum show was launched at the Suntory Museum of Art in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan. The Exhibition traveled to five other locations in Japan until the year 2002.

CBS, in a Charles M. Schulz tribute, designed an entire sound stage, comprised solely of Everhart's paintings, that were used with host Whoopi Goldberg, throughout the hour long special, in May of 2000.

After Charles Schulz passed away in February of 2000 it left Everhart with a deep sense of loss as well as an even stronger desire to communicate the incredible gift bestowed on him by Schulz.

Thus, in 2000 Everhart discovered French Polynesia, a small group of islands in the center of the Pacific Ocean. The ongoing trips between French Polynesia and Venice California have had a significant effect on the paintings most easily observed in the luminous color palette. But, most importantly, it offered him a new way of seeing the work that he was dedicated to continuing.

The Charles M Schulz Museum opened in August 2002 and the following year November 14th 2003 Everhart had the honor of presenting his works in a solo exhibition titled Under The Influence. He would also be included in the Museum's 2011, Pop'd From The Panel exhibition along with Warhol and Lichtenstein.

In 2004 Everhart showed a group of nine large scaled paintings titled Dots Dogs Drips with the S2 Art Gallery in Chicago that then traveled to Osaka and Tokyo in 2005.

For the next two years Everhart worked to produce two large bodies of works on paper, canvas, and wood. The first exhibition titled Cracking Up consisted of seventy-five artworks. The following exhibition Boom Shaka Laka Laka: The Lagoon Paintings was made up of three large scale paintings and one hundred fourteen works on paper ranging in sizes for 10" x 12" to 40" x 60". Both bodies of work were shown at the Jack Gallery.

In 2011 he exhibited 97 works, titled Crashing The Party a solo exhibition at the Animazing Gallery in New York.

Tom Everhart continues to lecture around the world on the artwork of Charles M Schulz and to communicate the unique collaborative relationship they shared, as a cartoonist and a painter. To this he has dedicated his life.

After living in San Francisco, Paris, New York, Washington D.C., Baltimore, and London, in 1997 Tom Everhart moved to Venice California where he now lives with Jennifer, his wife and director of their studio.
