  • BIOGRAPHY - Chris Pousette-Dart B. 1978

    The subject of my painting is ultimately found in the process of each painting. I begin without a preconceived idea, relying largely on instinct. I start with a set of parameters (a vocabulary of linear outlines or gestural marks) which serve as the foundation for the painting. From here a work evolves through numerous compositions and edits of making and un-making. Within this cumulative process the painting becomes more rigid and my responses more calculated. In a successful painting a point is reached when the painting clicks, the final composition becomes evident and permanent and I realize the remaining steps required to complete the painting.
