"Christopher Stott (b.1976) is a realist painter. Stott works in a clean, simple, vivid compositional style using vintage objects set against white and neutral grounds with soft, natural light, focussing on the geometric designs of his subjects. Combining a subdued palette, he has a unique approach and consistent technique. Along with precise rendering balanced with very delicate, painterly brushwork, Stott’s work is approachable on multiple levels and has its finger firmly on the pulse of contemporary representational painting."
