Whether brazenly wielded, or gently flecked with care upon a canvas, color is what conveys the depth of a painting’s character. Color is a storyteller that revels at once in contrast, complement, chaos and cadence, neither initiating life nor squelching it outright.
Color beats like a heart robbed of chest in the work of North Canton artist, Christopher Triner.
We open on a city bursting with an emphatic pulse. Grit and beauty thrumming together, mesmerizing in the dark…
The scene changes, exposes a richly dappled valley, with limbs reaching, no, tearing toward the sky with unknown urgency…
The scene changes, reveals a windswept field at autumn’s ascent. Blades rustling cautiously in unison…
The scene changes, unveils soft spoken blossoms, lolling in the hazy morning rays, just now waking.
Christopher’s work is a series of scenes – eager, desperate, anxious, and wistful moving pictures. Scenes locked in time with all the theatrics of a good long story.
Christopher teaches visual art for Hoover High School in North Canton. I think you’ll agree – our students are in good hands.
