Christopher comments: “As a professional artist my artwork follows the loose impressionist styles of Fauvism and the Scottish Colourists. My composed artwork points towards the light and colour of the modern contemporary and approaches on the side of abstract, with simplified lines, marks and shapes of coastline and landscape.

“I am inspired to capture and paint with an emotional response to the vast East Anglian skies and clouds that drift across the open land and sea. Putting on the original ground colour, I then start fading back to base in different sections of the painting, incorporating fascinating combinations of contemporary colours with a mixture of scumbled, with lost and found areas of transparent and opaque paints.

“The artist who has inspired me over my painting career is Samuel Peploe (RSA): adhering to the styles, tones and colour notes of his artworks.”
