The paintings are of specific places at specific times.

 

These are not random areas but places that I respond to on a personal level. My reaction can be a feeling of excitement, discovery, or of being overwhelmed at what I am encountering. These views connect to me in inexplicably familiar ways. These are not static places but ones that interact and confront me as they are approached. They are watching as well as being watched.

 

I am interested in finding the hidden pieces of the landscape that people often pass without notice. Many times individual connections to the area are severed one by one with the passing of time, people and flinction. Only the structures remain; abandoned, forgotten, waiting. I feel T am refocusing the viewer's eye, giving a renewed attention to the beauty, strength, and timeless qualities these settings have.

 

I consistently use architecture in my works to define the space. The different buildings I feel work together to create a unique environment and a unique impression on the viewer. Forms are stacked on top of structures, bands of light slide through illuminating areas while leaving others hidden. Layers of verticals and horizontals, and contrasts of dynamic and static shapes help to define the space and invite the viewer to look under or through or over. The paintings are staged under the drama of nightfall, the warmth of afternoon light, or under the startling quality of morning light.

 

I am interested in the act of seeing. I am looking for quiet moments. I am looking for a sense of calmness and in capturing the sensation of viewing a space as a long pause.

 

Though what I see and depict is my response to an environment in the present, I am also thinking of similar responses to the setting in the past, they are views that I feel have continued. I hope that I am bringing to the viewer's attention, enough information to generate a response equivalent to my own.

Chris, Your work is breathtaking! Kelsey Andersen's interview with you only confirmed what I felt while viewing your work. I was impressed to see your talents don't lay only in painting but in drawings as well. One of your paintings had life within the very sky. Just like looking at the actual sky and being able to see faces and figures! Much su.../...
