Artist Portfolio

CHRIS VANCE

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. - CV
