About Chris Quinlan

Chris began painting full time in 1999. He is a contemporary Irish artist,  well known for his unique signature style of painting, with much of his Irish abstract art works residing in private and corporate collections worldwide.

 He is a brushwork and  palette knife artist with a unique and original impressionistic technique, with an eye-catching blend of rich colours and bold textures, a very inviting and vivid style.

Artists Statement

"My paintings are the result of my desire and passion to paint. Oil Painting gives me the privilege of creating my own order to things, to reflect who I am on this colorful journey of self discovery and to be unafraid to share what I find.

 My intended goal is to capture and communicate life's experiences, moments and memories and convey my painted definition to the viewer. To draw the viewer into the piece and to stimulate and inspire them with its textures and colour.

 I am influenced by colours I see, feel and experience. I am in awe of and thoroughly inspired by the old impressionists with their play of objects and light.

 I would require a thousand lifetimes and a million canvases to paint all of the concepts of my imagination.

Biography

Chris Quinlan was Born in 1968 in Co. Tipperary, Ireland and now lives and paints in Kilbeggan, Co. Westmeath. As a child, Chris demonstrated a flare for drawing and creativity and dreamed of becoming an artist. His hometown in Templemore provided the foundation for his artistry and his love of travel and nature has hugely influenced his work.

Chris is predominantly a self-taught artist, studying art in his own time, attending exhibitions, art fairs and many other art events. Regularly exhibiting his work himself, he relishes feedback and criticism form viewers and uses it to develop his style and discipline. This combined with practice and more practice over time led to a unique and original impressionistic style of painting with an eye-catching blend of rich colours and bold textures. An inviting and vivid style, sensitivity and atmosphere that envelops the canvas.

Chris has completed a wide range of commissions and collections from animal portraits and abstract, to mural and landscape impressionism paintings. 


Artists Statement

My paintings are the result of my desire and passion to paint. The challenge and discipline overwhelms me before I even begin. Oil Painting gives me the privilege of creating my own order to things, to reflect who I am on this colorful journey of self discovery and be unafraid to share what I find.

My intended goal is to capture and communicate life's experiences, moments and memories and convey my painted definition to the viewer. To draw the viewer into the piece and to stimulate and inspire them with its textures and colour.

I am influenced by everything I see, feel and experience. I am in awe of and thoroughly inspired by the old impressionists, particularly the works of Monet, Van Gogh and Sargent with their play of objects and light.

When I begin a painting, it feels unnatural, unorganised and unbalanced, I seize the moment and completely let go. I find my way out of the unfamiliar territory and stand again on solid ground. Then with the knowledge of a new and colourful path, I excitedly await my next adventure.

I will require a thousand lifetimes and a million canvases to paint all the concepts of my imagination.
