Artist: Christopher Knox loves to create. The exhibit is a mixture of several pieces from a decade ago that were a study in color and fit well with the new pieces centered around impressions of the beach- with color as the subject as opposed to activities. "I contend that color in its most basic form must be strived towards as the eye is trained over time to identify common subjects of conformity in any given landscape. By eliminating the familiar payoff of these subjects, one can become more present with how colors evoke emotions. Moreover, the restraint involved in creating these compositions is surprisingly more difficult than one would imagine."
