Kristy Chettle
'Reclining Nude - Resting Nude Large Contemporary Abstract Oil On Wood

2019

About the Item

'Reclining Nude' is a captivating 28" x 65" oil on wood creation by artist Kristy Chettle, embodying the abstract figurative realm with a masterful interplay of color and form. Through the deft use of a rich palette—dominant in celestial blues and vibrant sunrise oranges—Chettle evokes the serene yet potent energy of the morning. The wood's natural texture integrates seamlessly with the sweeping brushstrokes, creating a dynamic surface that invites the viewer to a moment of introspection. The piece resonates with the promise of a new day, the orange hues symbolizing the first light piercing through the nocturnal veil. This artwork is a poignant reminder of nature's cyclical rebirth, offering a sense of renewal and hope. The strategic placement of colors and the raw, textured woodwork result in a visually stimulating experience that captures the ephemeral beauty of dawn's first light. About the Artist: Kristy Chettle is an abstract artist whose tactile approach to painting sets her apart. Born in Los Angeles, California in 1968, Chettle forgoes traditional brushes and palette knives, favoring the intimate connection of painting with her hands. Her works are characterized by deep textures, vibrant complimentary colors, and layers that carry a visceral sense of motion and raw emotion. Each piece is a reflection of her journey, interwoven with messages of environmental care and self-empowerment. Influenced by the likes of Picasso and Van Gogh, she strives to bring similar depth and life to her paintings. Her commitment to a green practice extends to using reclaimed wood and recycled canvases, minimizing her ecological footprint. Chettle's art, a vivid exploration of nature and transformation, resonates with those who seek expressive, meaningful compositions. “Kristy is a unique master, her technique is quite authentic and inspiring: All of Kristy’s works are painted with her bare hands. There are no brushes or palette knives used, which adds to the immediacy and rawness of the painting.” –Alik Elzafon, American Art Gallery, Carmel, CA 1-of-1, available at the American Art Gallery, Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
