Plus One Gallery is pleased to present the solo show of gallery artist Christian Marsh. The exhibition
titled ‘The Art of Travel’ is on display from 14th June until 8th July.
The exhibition will include
new paintings featuring Miami and Nice, as well
as oth
er works also based
on his travels around the world.
Marsh strives to capture the experience of his time abroad and the
personal connection he feels with each place. He aims to recreate the atmosphere of each location
through his paintings and aims
to communicate this to his audience.
“Exciting, enlightening and welcoming. I hope that the paintings do not just replicate a scene but
capture the essence and life within that scene and give the viewer a sense of feeling what it’s like
to be actually the
re”
His choice to paint in a hyper
-
realistic style is very deliberate; this approach allows Marsh to include
every intricate detail, making each small fragment of his paintings as important as the rest
creating
scenes within scenes. The inclusion of fig
ures within his work is also very important to Marsh. He
incorporates human presence to generate subtle narrative, helping to establish the overall
atmosphere, as well as building a sense of familiarity and interaction between the viewer and the
painting.
It is due to the
artist’s
meticulous techniques and direct intentions, along with his beautiful
rendition of light and compositional quality, that enable him to produce paintings that really can be
named the art of travel.
“[I aim to explore] the relations
hips between me and my experiences abroad. A reaction to that
environment, the light, the people and the essence and the feeling of that particular location”
