About

Chris Gwaltney paints in a lush style, combining areas of abstraction with loose figurative elements. He experiments with sensuous surface finishes, compiling multiple layers of paint and oil stick that show drips and various markings. Gwaltney’s paintings are open ended; the style is free and unfinished which allows the viewer to fill in the essence of each story. In these paintings the figure is expressed as a gesture, a presence simply articulated with line and stroke, often seen as walking alone or in relation to one or more figures. He builds and sketches on the canvas, taking away what is unnecessary, paring down the visual language.
