Horton Hayes Fine Art in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Chris Groves

Horton Hayes Fine Art in downtown Charleston, SC, is presenting an exhibition of new paintings by Chris Groves entitled, Reflection, on view through Oct. 24, 2010.

This grouping is inspired by both Groves' fascination with the reflective nature of light as well as the contemplative sensibility he aims to elicit through his work. The pieces demonstrate Groves' keen attention to the illumination of the objects and landscapes he portrays as he captures the angle and intensity of light and the specific luster of surfaces with exquisite precision. 

Groves studied painting at the Florence Academy in Italy. He excels in the Tonal style of painting which employs a limited palette of mostly neutral hues from which the value ranges of colors are developed. The technique builds layers of atmosphere, texture and depth in a painting. Groves works hang in numerous private and corporate collections.
