Christopher Schade: "Islands"

5 January - 17 Feburary, 2007

Spinning Island, 2004 (Detail)
Oil on Canvas
72 x 72 inches

d berman gallery kicks off 2007 with Islands, a vibrant show of new paintings by Christopher Schade. He says, I use the island form to paint people, animals, plants, architecture, mechanical objects, portraits and landscapes simultaneously. The openness of the islands creates a space for freedom and contradiction. I want the expansiveness of these images to generate surprise. I want the world in the paintings to come apart and rebuild itself the way the real world does. Mr. Schade received his MFA from Yale University School of Art and a BAA from University of Texas at Austin, and had a residency at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He currently lives and maintains a studio in New York, and teaches at Montclair State University.
