Chris Moon is a painter of prodigious talent. Now with six sell-out solo shows behind him – five in London and one in New York – Chris’ only education in art and rendering was taken from the experiences that shaped him and the images he absorbed. Bypassing his peers in who were in art schools, Chris possesses something that many artists work tirelessly to achieve – an innate understanding of colour, shape and form, with an uncanny and effortless ability to render past memories and events in sharp, yet dream-like detail.
A single painting often receives due attention, and completion, countless times. He brings these works to places where other artists would have stopped and passed on to their dealer, only to then take it apart, scrape it back, leave in just a series of marks and start all over again.
What finally appears – and is an emergent process – is a multi-layered depth like staring into an ocean; you can see only one surface, but you know that countless other stories lurk beneath. His paintings offer the viewer a back catalogue of places he been and his own unique experiences of them.
