About Chris Neyen
Chris Neyen is a painter whose works are characterized by layers, luminous surfaces and vertical formations creating a visceral tactile experience. Contemplative time spent in the deep woods of the Northeast shows it's influence, but far from being landscape's, the work speaks to much deeper themes in our relationship with nature. The unique brand of intimacy seeks to engage the viewer to step closer to explore the nuances and hues of color and wonder about what lays underneath each layer. Chris Neyen's work has been featured in numerous regional group and solo shows. He has also exhibited across the country in California and closer to home in New York City. "˜My work is about creating images that underscore our relationships with each other and nature, speaking to what is perpetually original and yet ever changing'
