Chris Moss

Based in United Kingdom
Born in Leeds, I studied art on the Pre BA Art & Design Foundation Course at Jacob Kramer College in Leeds and received a BA (Hons) Fine Art Degree from Newcastle Upon Tyne Polytechnic. After completing my Degree and finding that my creative well was dry, I hung up my beret and smock and took a P.G.C.E. to become a teacher of Art…. Many years later a chance visit to Paris provided the inspiration to set myself up in a successful business partnership producing high quality recreations of Impressionist master-works. My slumbering muse had been awoken! I now exclusively produce my own original paintings, but the legacy of Renoir, Degas and Monet is very much alive! I have exhibited in the usual bar, restaurant, craft fair and group exhibition locations and have sold works to private homes, hotels, bars and show houses throughout the U.K. mainly through magazine mail order. Through on-line sales I have also dipped into the transatlantic market. I currently live and work in Yorkshire. I basically paint in two very distinctive ways. One studio based the other very much not. The first of my styles is in the tradition of the Impressionists and involves a strict ‘en plein air’ method. The naked glory of the magnificent Yorkshire landscape is my only source material. I really enjoy the exhilaration and excitement of the ‘alla prima’ painting style, that by practical necessity, location work demands. It is important for me to complete this type of work on site, so no studio ‘touch up’ work is carried out on any of the paintings which are mainly executed in oil on canvas. Temperate weather and day light are unfortunately limited and in the studio I take the opportunity to experiment with more expressionistic approaches to the landscape using acrylic paints, mixed media and on occasion even sponges. In the studio I also use the nude, another traditional art subject much favoured by the Impressionists, as a starting point to explore different painting techniques and materials. I have recently been exploring the more expressionistic and even abstract aspects of landscape. Ballerinas have also extended the diversity of my repertoire.
