Chris Gamble

I am addicted to the visual, the perceived colours of light, the quality of drawn lines, the fluidity of paint, pattern and design, shape and texture. These abstract qualities are what make art so exciting. In my own work I do not want a carefully controlled image. I want to be surprised by what has happened in the way that a toddler is surprised and delighted by the marks it has been able to make. Accidents and idiosyncrasies are what give an artist a signature and make the work interesting. I would like the viewer to use her/his own experience and imagination to enjoy my marks.

I have made drawings and paintings from infancy. I attended Lowestoft Art School at eighteen. I took up printmaking during a degree course at UEA. As a member of Breckland Artists and Artworks, I regularly exhibit in their shows. I have sold work from London to Newcastle, widely in East Anglia, and in major open exhibitions such as The Discerning Eye, the Eastern Open (a prizewinner), Art for Cure and the Castle EAAF biennial exhibitions in Norwich. My work has travelled to Europe, America and Canada.
