With the introduction of 360° images Tom creates art to be viewed with 3D goggles and 360° viewers. The final piece is attractive as a 2D image appearing like a fish eye view. 360° images are the future, everyone will wear virtual glasses. Paintings become a new experience in 360°. The next 360° paintings by Tom Lohre will be large 30” x 40” figurative in the traditional manner.

Looking at the 2D painting image of the 360°, start on the left side, you see Jefferson Avenue looking east, then the fountain composed of a two small strokes in a field of dark purple, next the street signs on a pole, then you look up Clifton Avenue, then the firehouse and westward down Ludlow Avenue. Move right and you pass Clifton Avenue looking north then see the two tall four story buildings that are Skyline and J Gumbo’s. 360° images are formatted 2:1, width is twice the height. The image was squeezed for the 16” x 12” painting. The painting image was resized to 2:1 and uploaded into online viewers.
Looking at this painting using the 360° viewer link above, look up and move around until you see the road signs for orientation. Then look down a little to the right and you are looking westward down Ludlow Avenue. Move right and you pass Clifton Avenue looking north then see the two tall four story buildings that are Skyline and J Gumbo’s. Moving further right you look up Jefferson Avenue and then the fountain composed of a two small strokes in a field of dark purple.
Though this painting is small and the consequence is abstraction, a larger canvas would allow better immersion into the 360° effect.
This painting uses a special technique of melting nine special oil pastel colors. Each color plays a major roles in creating atmosphere and form. Though the surface looks like an impasto impressionistic oil painting melting the oil pastels makes the execution clean, simple and once cooled, dry to touch. Tom invented the technique for a Lego painting machine he made. The manner appealed so much to Tom because he could travel with it and create paintings that looked like oil but without the messiness and drying time. The painting machine could only handle eight colors. Tom experimented in many variations of eight colors and in time distilled all colors into these nine. The manner is uniquely Tom’s.
Though in its infancy, 360° images will take over. Like the old days where you had to set parameters to get the computer to work, displaying a 360° is a real challenge. In the future, everyone will wear virtual glasses, part of your phone.
