About

"Brahman, Highly Realistic Contemporary Water (Ocean) Painting in Blue/Green and White." Elegant, tranquil and serene oil painting on canvas with a photographic quality of sea and sky with brilliant light and exquisite detail. Chris Armstrong, whose only subjects are the ocean and sky, is one of the leading contemporary artists working in this realm and is one of the finest painters of water in the country. He intuitively understands water's and sky's volatility at all times of day and in all kinds of light, weather, and temperature conditions, and further challenges his incomparable ability to simulate photographic likenesses to even more significantly convey what it is about these subjects that renders them so compelling. Armstrong's paintings are gorgeous, as fresh and varied as the experience itself, and wonderfully reminiscent of how glorious it is be anywhere near or on the water. Armstrong's material choices - in this case oil on panel - also have the advantage of offering the option to install his paintings unframed (this painting is unframed and doesn't require framing) so as to emphasize the seemingly infinite and breathtaking expanse of ocean and sky. Chris Armstrong was born in Pennsylvania, he graduated from Bucknell Univeristy in 1989 and received an M.F. A. in Painting from New York University in 1993. He has had over a dozen one-person exhibitions, works have been included in over 35 group shows and are in numerous private and public collections including the Bennington Art Museum, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, and Fidelity Investments. Selected reviews include articles in “Art News” (October, 2013) and “The Boston Globe” (March, 2007 and September, 2009). Chris Armstrong has been represented by the Beth Urdang Gallery since 2004.
