Chris Hagan - When is Now
Chris Hagan (b.1974) is a contemporary visual artist based in Hove, Sussex. Chris began his contemporary fine art practice in 2017, producing figurative and landscape-based works on canvas, paper and mixed media.
This new body of work has as much to do with subject as the exploration of art as creator and viewer. Visual memory and the referencing of artists and creatives alongside the events of preceding generations absorb into thought processes and methods of making, often in subtle and incongruent ways.
A blurred visual memory of an actor from a forgotten theatre production becomes a constantly evolving motif, an effigy to a moment that has passed and the subtle changes in visual memory over the passage of time (The Ever Changing Memory of an Alan Bennet play).
