Chris Vance - Ever #2
We've loved Chris Vance's paintings since the first moment we saw them...and it appears the rest of the world has taken notice! Chris has chalked up many accolades in the last few years, including selection as the featured artist for 2012 of one of America's most prestigious juried shows, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival (Denver, CO). We're thrilled for Chris, and even more thrilled that Chris Vance has chosen us to sell his work.
Chris Vance, in his words:
Art is my diary. Throughout time art has marked place and time. My work is the expression of daily events that form ideas and transform the canvases. I don’t attempt to settle the piece before paint hits the canvas. I like the canvas to tell me what it needs in the form of line and color. I look at composition and balance, and my feelings drive the piece on a subconscious level.
Ideas are an internal ingestion and the art is the medium of the expression. Understanding my work is to understand me as a person. Evolution in the paintings shows how small ideas turned into big ideas and those ideas back from big to small. The smallest things in life strike ideas that fuel my work in progression.
