• Chris Billington on Pictorial Space

    Pictorial space in my work is achieved by neither a logical or preconceived process but rather a creative vision which starts the moment my brush touches the canvas.

  • Chris Billington on modern art

    I am continually exploring the abstract, with a focus on the spatial relationships of colour and the spiritual rather than the mere physical, submitting myself entirely to the unknown yet with an absolute faith and commitment to the power of abstraction. Always I want to produce very modern art.

  • Chris Billington on colour

    With colour as the key factor, my work is informed as much by basic design ideas about colour relationships as much as it is influenced by the mystical landscape, the reflective sea, and the vibration of the pure light in Cornwall, the land that I grew up in. I think of my paintings as an experience of the sensational world of colour and light.

    The most important thing to me as a painter is the energy of colour.

  • Chris Billington on energy

    I paint in an instinctive and impulsive way, always finding new ways of seeing and working, focused on a belief in simplicity and colour and aiming for a balance and a sense of pictorial space. A space defined not only by the picture’s structure but also it’s feeling, it’s sensation – my paintings are about energy.
