Chris Gollon


Chris Gollon is an established name in British painting. Born London 1953, he has enjoyed many solo museum exhibitions in the UK, museum acquisitions including the British Museum, and public commissions. He has exhibited at Art Chicago and also with Yoko Ono, David Bowie and Gavin Turk in ROOT, a crossover exhibition of contemporary music and art created by Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, at Chisenhale Gallery, London.
His work is attracting increasing acclaim in the national press and specialist arts press: Financial Times, The Times, The Guardian, Aesthetica,BBC Radio 4, BBC1 News, and Alan Yentob’s BBC1 programme Imagine. His film collaboration with JABOD, entitled Kaleidomorphism One, was premiered in London at the East End Film Festival (2008). Novelist Sara Maitland’s book Stations of the Cross (Continuum, London & New York, 2009) was wholly inspired by and features Gollon’s 14 paintings of the Stations of the Cross, which were commissioned by the Church of England for a grade-one listed Sir John Soane church in East London. Chris Gollon: Humanity in Art by art historian Tamsin Pickeral (Hyde & Hughes) and endorsed by Bill Bryson OBE, was published in 2010.
Chris Gollon was both First Artist in Residence and Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Study (2009), Durham University, and accepted an invitation to return as Artist in Residence at St Mary’s College in spring 2011. In late 2011, the Hollywood film makers of the Twilight Saga leased the copyright of one of his paintings to use it as an integral part of the story in Breaking Dawn: Part One. In January 2012, the Chris Gollon ‘app’ was launched on Apple as a download for iPads, where Chris Gollon reveals some of his technical and creative secrets. Chris Gollon is currently working toward a series of paintings for a solo touring show of British cathedrals, which is also a collaboration with novelist Sara Maitland. Gollon lives and works in Surrey, and is represented by IAP Fine Art, London. Chris Gollon’s art materials are supplied by Curtis Ward.
