Bold Notion: Christopher Deeton
Bold Notion is a study in transformation.
Conceived as a series, Bold Notion embraces and embodies the dynamic nature of CORE:—our space, our community, and our culture—and the artists who inspire us. Modern, playful, and inventive, Bold Notion redefines the club experience.
Deeton's latest collection of work "Fear is a Liar" allows his unique voice to explore the intersection and tension between discovery and invention, between the concrete and the ethereal.
While the artist borrows from Minimalism and abstraction, he finally strikes an especially lyric note...What is surprising is that such spare compositions should so insistently connote the primacy of the secret, the subtle, and the obscure. Yet for such intimations, these are not canvases that shrink from the space they inhabit...Rather they have a preternatural gravity that feels explicitly directed toward the viewer." - Artforum
A visionary, Christopher Deeton’s work is controlled and austere in its minimalism, while his painterly technique creates depth in its narrative.
Deeton is an artist of rigor who possesses a deep knowledge of 20th-century art history. His work transcends his influences and possesses its own identity.
He relies on his skilled hand, allowing a rhythmic interplay between precision and the organic process. His work proves a refreshing anecdote to the technological hum of todays world.
Deeton lives in Manhattan with his wife and two daughters.
