Arizona artist Colin Chillag is best known for his complex paintings that fuse two often juxtaposed styles: hyperrealism and abstraction. By dissolving his representational figures into unfinished segments, where underpainting, notes and sketches are exposed in the composition, the artist transcends the instantaneous nature of a fixed moment. Chillag’s latest series is based on found photographs, mostly from the 1970s, and are reminiscent of his own childhood.
