Chris Holt bio: Chris Holt was born in Seattle. He received his BA/BFA from the University of Washington in Art and Graphic Design in 1992 and graduated from the Gary Faigin Atelier at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle in 2020. Inspired by Faigin, Edward Hopper, Norman Lundin, and others, Chris is known for his strong compositions, visual storytelling capabilities, and thought-provoking, symbolic oil paintings. In his work Chris often combines flowers, landscapes, cloudscapes, architectural spaces, and everyday objects into luminous, indelible scenes filled with emotion, harmony and intrigue. Thoughtful, imaginative and unexpected, filled with layers of light and color: Chris captures the essence and emotion of fleeting moments, creating works of lasting beauty that bring joy, remembrance, fulfillment and inspiration. You can find Chris' paintings at Lynn Hanson Gallery, Domicile Gallery, and here on his website. He is a member of Plein Air Washington Artists. His award-winning paintings have been featured in several Northwest galleries and exhibitions.


Chris Holt artist's statement: Growing up, I was always fascinated by the visual world. Whether at the beach, in the swimming pool, wandering through a flower shop or hiking Northwest trails, I would find myself transfixed by the interplay of light, color, texture and dimension all around me. Ever since, I have tried to understand and capture in my work the essential feelings that these visions spark within me. Why is a particular scene calling to me? Having the patience to sit with this question until clarity emerges is just as important for me as knowing how to mix and apply pigments to canvas. Introspection leads to sketching, and then to thumbnail compositions and rough studies. During this process I look for visual ways to support and enhance the emotional narrative. By simplifying the composition into key shapes, values, textures and colors, I attempt to maintain the integrity of both the composition and the feelings I want to convey. Only when a painting truly communicates the emotion, beauty and essence of its subject, both for myself and my audience, do I consider it a success.
