Abstract (English)

"Over the last four decades Chris Cran has earned a reputation as one of the most important painters in Canada. He has challenged our experience of traditional genres of painting by creating tensions between the discordant styles and movements from which he samples, including Pop Art, Photorealism, Modernist Abstraction and Op art. To complicate this mix, he has introduced popular imagery from advertising and graphic art from magazines from the 1950s and 1960s, producing works that exude a rare and unapologetic boldness and confidence." -- Publisher's website.
