About the Artist
Chris Gilvan-Cartwright (b. 1966 England) is a visual artist whose practice operates as a hermetic portal between an instinctive inner and outer reality as if operating as a pineal body. Chris invents painted narratives involving corporeal figures, holy men or hermits falling or about to fall apart in a state of reverie, occupying preternatural abstract landscapes and stage sets referencing Northern European medieval paintings such as Geertgen tot Sint Jans and Joachim Patinir. Chris lives and works in East Sussex, UK.
