Chris Gollon is an established name in British painting, having enjoyed many solo museum shows in the UK and museum acquisitions, including the British Museum, as well as increasing acclaim in the national press and media.
In this application, Chris Gollon reveals the secrets of both his creative processes and his very innovative painting and printmaking techniques. How does a final image in painting come about, both in terms of imagination and execution? In this application, painting by painting, you find out from the artist himself.
In 2009, when Alan Yentob’s BBC1 programme Imagine followed Gollon through painting a commission, Liquitex, the world’s largest manufacturer of artists’ acrylic paints were fascinated by Gollon’s techniques in acrylic paint and approached him directly to find a way of communicating his techniques more widely. Much has been written about oil painting, but comparatively little about acrylic.
This application provides a fascinating insight into the craft of acrylic painting at the very highest and most innovative level, both for art students and art collectors; but also for the general art lover, it is a rare and fascinating insight into a great contemporary artist’s imagination.
