Artwork

Christopher Clark's paintings radiate a special luminous quality of light. The delicate layers of paint he applies act as a prism to refract light throughout the painting, giving the work a glowing quality. Christopher uses this unique effect to build scenes that remind us of treasured memories or nearly forgotten dreams. He says of this painting, "The Galleria of Milan, Italy is an enchanting walk of shops, restaurants, and bustling people, all moving beneath a glowing light, which filters in through thousands of windows in the arched and domed ceiling. For this painting I wanted to focus on light and movement, rather than specific detail. As you look at the painting up close, it becomes more abstract than realistic. Playing with values and temperatures was also a goal, and they juxtapose each other across the painting playfully."

Christopher Clark's oil paintings radiate light through layers of intricate brushwork and metal leaf. His style includes realism, surrealism and impressionism, as he explains, "I want my art to resonate with someone, to speak to them, and reveal a part of their life they've long forgotten. Like a dream that almost slips away, but seeing my painting brings the dream into clear focus." Christopher is also the only licensed Lucasfilm and Marvel artist in Colorado, with a few of his Star Wars paintings in the collection of George Lucas himself. To get to this point in his career, Christopher had to overcome the general advice to "get a real job" that is told so often to aspiring artists. After several "real jobs" and an unsatisfying career, he made the decision to become an artist full time - at which point, Christopher says that the doors opened up for him with galleries, commissions, and a teaching mentor. Now, he’s gaining national attention and TV news coverage for his art. Christopher's talent in the arts goes beyond painting - during his time as lead guitarist for a rock band, he opened for Blue Oyster Cult and Eddie Money. He is also a national-award-winning swing dancer, and he loves tango and blues dancing.
