Young Woman

Chris Longridge

Chris is a Kent-based artist that works primarily in oils. He explores the limitations and opportunities afforded by paint in a post-digital environment, particularly regarding portraiture and the figure.

Chris is also the Deputy Editor of Digital Spy here at Heast.

“'Young woman' is a discontinuous figure study in which I've tried to find new ways to break up the picture plane. I think straightforward representation is disingenuous, but this style acknowledges the artificiality of a posed picture while also injecting interesting new opportunities in composition, movement and the illusion of three-dimensionality.”
