Touching on Water is a collection of seventy-six of Thomas Paquette's paintings in oil and in gouache dating from 1992 through 2014. Each composition is brought to focus by some form of water, an almost-too-common-to-be-noticed part of our lives, often rendered invisible to conscious attention by its very centrality to life. These paintings bring it back to our eyes and minds, focusing our regard on this most ubiquitous but extraordinary and vitally important element in our daily lives.
