Free brushstrokes and soft-edged areas of colour lead to items that blend vitality and delicacy to robust impact. Whereas his oil work have sharper particulars and a extra historically reasonable ambiance, they exhibit the identical dynamic really feel for line and composition.
Chisholm calls the act of portray a “dialogue” with the world, and that notion of a continuously evolving relationship between artist and topic ends in works with an appealingly open-ended high quality. That open-endedness extends to such current methods as not completely ending a portray to its edges, additional underlining the sense of transformation that makes his pictures so involving.
Chisholm relies in Salem, Massachusetts and repeatedly displays in addition to teaches throughout the Boston space.
