Christopher Page’s focus is the complex interplay between the so-called ‘imaginary’ and ‘symbolic’ registers in architectural space.
His paintings, both deep and flat, luminescent and opaque, draw on a visual language reminiscent of geometric. Modernism only to cast a shadow over the noonday sun of its primary forms. Admixing illusionistic oil painting techniques with acrylic paint applied with a roller and airbrush, Page’s paintings produce visual paradoxes that speak to our complex visual moment.
