Chris Kettle

Chris Kettle
1971

Brighton painter Chris Kettle is notorious for his subversive approach to still life and his recent work draws inspiration from the work of the Dutch Masters. The artist uses inanimate objects ordinarily associated with pure study as a means with which to explore many facets of human emotion, reworking these classical symbols in his own distinctive, often dark and brooding style. The result of this marriage of classic and contemporary is a highly engaging body of work in which the artist presents a variety of sentiments that are both touching and humorous.

As Art Review stated, Kettle turns the genre on its head to give personal and contemporary versions on the still life theme.

Chris Kettle has exhibited widely, including solo shows in Brighton and Newcastle, and group shows in London and Gstaad.
