"The absorbing challenge I face every time I pick up a brush and attempt to portray elements of the human spirit using the apparently inanimate, is one that that keeps me totally consumed."

Chris Kettle is a British artist that has redefined still life paintings into a modern idiom. Drawing from the Dutch Masters, he acknowledges and expands on traditional practice.
In Chris’s own words “The paintings inhabit a mysterious world of their own with objects arranged on canvasses that are charges with light and drama to somehow channel emotion and universal feelings. I like the idea that my paintings are entertaining, and possess relatable aesthetic qualities alongside ambiguity and even at times a kind of humour. The absorbing challenge I face every time I pick up a brush and attempt to portray elements of human spirit using the apparently inanimate, is one that keeps me totally consumed.”
