Chris Hood is an American artist born in Atlanta who currently lives and works in New York City. Though representational in nature, his paintings, sculptures, and drawings reflect an understanding of the abstract nature in which personal and social imagery collide in the twenty first century. Combining traditional techniques with the languages of digital territories, his work often features images culled from american counter-culture, art history, and mass media rendered abstract by translation.

Drawing parallels to his interests in psychophysics, the paintings are cast in a liminal space with a unique reverse-stain technique that rests his compositions in ambiguous and perceptual tension. Likening them to faded advertisements or t-shirts turned inside out, Hood invests the evocative physicality of his paintings with themes of identity, memory, and loss. The resulting works hint at challenges with the idea of static perspective while pointing to larger questions concerning the role of images and contemporary painting.
