Christos Tsimaris received his MA from the Winchester School of Art. He paints figures that are both representational and abstract. His brushstroke is gestural, and sometimes after adding a layer, he will then scrape part of it off, so that the underlying paint will peek through. In “2still,” an abstracted figure floats in space atop a blue and grey background. The neat division of the foreground from the background is in contrast to the gestural paint strokes used to depict the central figure.
