Artwork

A realistic still life presenting an assortment of circular objects set on a classic wooden table by artist Christopher Garvey. He depicts a handful of orange and red tomatoes and cherry tomatoes, a #1 billiard ball, an orange marble with hints of blue, and a clear glass marble. By taking a traditional approach, Christopher starts his process by building layers of oil paint above an underdrawing. He then works with grisaille, and when once dried, he proceeds with layers of color on top. He paints the subject against a muted backdrop which heightens its vibrance. It results in a captivating classic still life.

Christopher Garvey

Columbia, South Carolina

Christopher Garvey focuses on the still life in his work, capturing objects like dishes and fruit with impressive clarity. He currently lives in South Carolina and finds inspiration in Renaissance and Baroque art. When it comes to technique, he enjoys the challenge of accurate drawing and the transparent qualities of oil paint. He has collected many books over the years, which he uses to improve his practice.
