Chris Winter: Telling Tales

The Allsop Gallery, Bridport Arts Centre, 9 South Street, Bridport, Dorset DT6 3NR

01308 424204

Saturday 12 April 2014 – Saturday 10 May 2014
Preview: Friday 11 April, 18:00 - 20:00
Opening Hours: 10.00 - 16.00

Join us for the exhibition opening, during which a Séance performance will take place with Winter's 'Holbein Table'.

Christopher Winter creates paintings that appear at first to be simple depictions of idyllic scenes but on a second glance challenge us to reassess our initial impressions. Our surroundings and our own sense of reality are brought into question and begin to unravel. The English artist now residing in Berlin has recreated his own displacement in his paintings. Rendered in postcard-like tints, the undulating mountainous landscapes become a devil's playground for Teutonic Gothic menace. Winter exults in the subliminal-the weightless borderline between innocence and experience, the pastoral and the eldritch, the familiar and the uncanny, the perceiver and the perceived. (The Artist's production includes a diverse output of paintings, objects, drawings and videos and a Séance performance will take place during the opening with his 'Holbein Table').

Christopher Winter is represented by Edelman Arts, New York, Mindy Solomon Gallery, Miami and Lehr Zeitgenössische Kunst, Cologne / Berlin.
