'The Essence of Red Wine'
This still life demonstrates Chris Gollon's consummate use of fine art spray paints, which Liquitex supplied to him free of charge, since they were fascinated by his use of fine artist's acrylic paint. In many of his late still life, he painted the cork as though you could reach in and pull it out, having read Rousseau's description of visiting a Chardin exhibition, noting how reachable the fruit and cheese seemed.
Chris Gollon (1953 - 2017) enjoyed many solo museum shows and museum acquisitions, including the British Museum. For further details on the recent books published on his work, public commissions, press coverage, visit the artist's official information website: chrisgollon.com. IAP Fine Art has exclusivity on Gollon's work, and we help collectors begin or expand their collections, and we also work with museums and cathedrals with regard to exhibitions and acquisitions.
