Christian Vincent

 

b. 1966 Santa Monica, CA, Lives and works in Santa Monica, CA

New York, —C24 GALLERY is pleased to announce its representation of American artist Christian Vincent.

Christian Vincent is an artist living and working in Santa Monica, California. He studied at the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA. His dream-like paintings explore the dynamics of conformity and desire in social situations within the framework of a post-industrial world. His strong compositions feel melancholic and evoke a sense of isolation. The subjects, often youthful figures on the verge of adulthood, capture a sense of innocence confronted with the compromises of modern life.

In Art in America, Gerrit Henry states: “The artist Vincent most closely resembles is not a painter at all but the early-to mid-20th-century novelist Sinclair Lewis. Like Lewis, with his knowing savaging of all things American, Vincent is, at bottom, a social commentator. If Vincent's points are not as sharply drawn as Lewis's, nor his moral outrage as neatly presented, he shares with the author of Babbitt a deep and perplexed love of his country worked out in a melodrama of purely native characters and situations.”

Christian Vincent's work has been exhibited extensively in the United States, including at the Naples Art Museum, Naples, FL; Susquehanna Art Museum, Harrisburg, PA; Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA; and Arnot Art Museum, Elmira, NY, and his work is included in several prominent private collections internationally.
