About Chris


Christopher Stott is best known for his straightforward, clean representational oil paintings of vintage technology transformed from ordinary and common objects to symbols and icons.

Stott works in a clean, simple, vivid compositional style using vintage objects set against white and neutral grounds with soft, natural light, focussing on the geometric designs of his subjects. Combining a subdued palette, he has a unique approach and consistent technique. Along with precise rendering balanced with very delicate, painterly brushwork, Stott’s work is approachable on multiple levels and has its finger firmly on the pulse of contemporary representational painting.

After receiving his BFA with High Honors and Distinguished Exhibition from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada in 2003, Christopher Stott worked in the fine art department of the university he graduated from. In 2007, Stott began to focus full-time on a prolific and devoted studio painting career.

Stott lives on Vancouver Island. He works from the studio in his home with his wife and two children.

Artist Statement

I approach my work with a naturalistic styling and a strong sense of minimalism and order.

I paint a wide variety of vintage and antique objects including appliances, books, clocks, typewriters, among other common instruments. As subjects, they have a built-in narrative, they tell stories. And transforming them into painting creates an intimate, slower viewing experience. My hope is that in the paintings a viewer can find big picture ideas and even personal histories and stories.

The straightforward compositions break the objects down into simple shapes and designs. My painting technique, adding multiple layers of paint and minute but still painterly detail, creates a near-photorealist aesthetic.

I choose to paint the objects because, put simply, painting is transformative.
