Christian Vincent’s paintings carry whimsy and melancholy, the artist playing with light and perspective in scenes from the everyday. Surrealism is typical in Vincent’s work, yet at varying degrees. The overall essence plays into the function of memory and how we fill in details with the perspectives of both then and now.
“His dream-like paintings explore the dynamics of conformity and desire in social situations within the framework of a post-industrial world,” C24 Gallery says of the artist. “His strong compositions feel melancholic and evoke a sense of isolation. The subjects, often youthful figures on the verge of adulthood, capture a sense of innocence confronted with the compromises of modern life.”
