Chris Rivers – Satellite

May 18th 2023 at the Friedrich Pontone Gallery

Friedrichs Pontone is thrilled to present Satellite, a solo exhibition of works by British artist Chris Rivers, featuring a mesmerizing selection of his otherworldly, stellar skyscapes.

Rivers’ large-scale paintings are inspired by the natural world and his fascination with the cosmos. His works capture the beauty and majesty of the sky, from the swirling clouds to the shimmering stars. These paintings are not simply depictions of the natural world, but rather a reflection of Rivers’ own emotional response to it. Rendered in a sumptuous palette of rich color and a welter of expressive, gestural handling that is at once abstract and representational, Rivers conveys the awe-inspiring power of nature and the limitless potential of the universe.
