CHRIS KETTLE

Framed Still Life of Fruit & Flowers after Huysum - Original

Merging realism with abstraction, Still Life of Fruit and Flowers, After Van Huysym depicts a posy of flowers, recalling the aesthetic of the Dutch Baroque painter who gives his name to the title. Bold-red and luminescent-white petals seem to emerge from a deep, muddy background of charcoal greys and mossy greens, which Kettle has built up with textured streaks and daubs. With its ghostly quality, the print evokes the past, while speaking to the contemporary moment with innovative style.

A NOTE FROM US

WHAT WE LOVE

We love the way Chris' artwork sheds new light on a traditional form of painting. The artist says of his favoured painting style: “for the last couple of decades I have focused solely on Still Life painting. The paintings inhabit a mysterious world of their own with objects arranged on canvases that are charged with light and drama to somehow channel emotion and universal feelings." Chris succeeds in revitalising a lost art form.
