Christopher Olson, Seattle Contemporary Artist


Title: Joe Gould's Secret
Medium: Acrylic on canvas, 4"x4"
Year: 2007
Location: Artist's residence - For Sale

This piece was created as part of a series of over thirty individual 4" x 4" canvases which were then displayed together side by side unframed (see photo below).


Working in this small format allowed Chris to create each piece in about a 4 to 6 hours which he found very rewarding. Side note, this is not the only size that he works in. Most of his other pieces tend to be 18" x 24" or larger.

Fantastic surreal quality to his work.

Brilliant use of color. Sea Creatures, Sea Dwellers on your site especially knocks me out!
