overview

Solely a watercolorist, Chris Wagner uses an extreme depth of color and contrast not often seen in the medium. Neither complete realism nor impressionism, he explores a go-between both, giving an atmospheric feeling to his works. He has lived from the mountains to the coast of North Carolina, and enjoys painting locations and people from all paths he has crossed. North Carolina is a state rich in subject matter, and should keep him painting for years to come. He also paints entirely abstract pieces; it is an enjoyable respite from the constraints of representational work. Whether abstract or from life, he strives to push the boundaries of watercolor to unexpected results.
