Events & Exhibitions
The Humble Gallery is delighted to announce Christopher's forthcoming exhibition entitled 'Skin'. Hanson’s signature work of large scale realistic portraits painted using traditional methods which show great accuracy and detail. His paintings explore the fear and fascination associated with dark skin and the depiction of the Black Body as exotic, hyper-sexual and hyper- masculine.
'My work explores the subconscious mind relates to ‘darkness’ and ‘blackness’ and aims to depict the beauty, mystery and unexplained power that is associated with black skin'.
Christopher Hanson’s exhibition will include an artist talk, a discussion on ‘Fetishism and the Black Body', a poetry & music night, and two art workshops in which he will discuss and teach his methodology for painting black skin, influenced by his extensive research into Jacques Marjorelle and others.
