Chris Jansch says of his work – “My oil paintings record random juxtaposed observations in both the natural & domestic environments. I incorporate text & symbol within the balancing act of colour, composition & space providing a kind of cryptic narrative. Most of my initial ideas are conceived from thought processes are mapped out onto carefully prepared canvas. My oil paintings tends to be dominated by states of high anxiety & uncertainty. This provides opportunity to freely take risk & chance to experiment with more personal, meaningful ideas & thought provoking concepts.

I take inspiration from contemporary abstraction and pop art.

The art of the untrained can be impressive. My art is crucial despite having been formally trained in the Fine Arts & Commercial Arts.” – Chris Jansch
