A Modern Girl
Chris Gollon was a master of technique in acrylic painting, combining Old Master techniques of very thin washes and glazes, with printmaking techniques, even the use of a printmaker's roller, alongside the latest spray paints. Liquitex, manufacturers of artist's acrylic paints, were so intrigued by his work they began supplying his paints for nothing in 2012, and filmed him working in the year this image was painted.
As can be seen in this work, Chris Gollon (1953 - 2017) was a very sensitive painter of women. He was a critically-acclaimed painter in European art history, with many solo museum shows and museum acquisitions, including the British Museum.
