Christopher Farrell: Vantage Point (A Contemporary View of Oxford)
In his new solo exhibition 'Vantage Point', Christopher Farrell is setting out to explore Oxford, recording not just its iconic skyline but the rapidly changing face of the city too.
Christopher Farrell is already well known for his interpretations of historic painting techniques, used to make his distinctive paintings of London. Often large scale, his paintings contain breath-taking detail using combinations of highly skilled drawn marks, as well as more gestural and abstract forms. Using similar approaches to painters of the past, in particular Canaletto, Christopher practices methods that have not changed for centuries, yet he doesn't romanticise the or omit indicators of a rapidly changing skyline.
