CHRIS NIEDLAND

Beauty Art Gallery is excited to present new work from Chris Niedland. Niedland’s paintings project bold color harmonies, so it’s not surprising to learn he paints while listening to a wide array of music. Synchromism, is an art movement dating to the 1920s. It is based on the idea that color and sound are similar phenomena and that the colors in a painting can be orchestrated in the same harmonious way that a composer arranges notes in a symphony.

“I have listened to music while creating artwork since I was very young. It wasn’t until attending MOMA’s Inventing Abstraction exhibit last fall, that I finally found a name for what I was doing – synchromism,” said Niedland.

Following is a glimpse of some of Niedland’s new works.

Chris Niedland was born in Media, Pennsylvania in 1966, and has lived most of his life in Wayne, PA. He is a self-taught artist and began painting professionally in 1991 while employed as an architect in Boston, Massachusetts. Late in 2003, he left the field of architecture to pursue painting full-time.

His painting style evolved out of an initial experiment in "automatic" painting, originally inspired by the "automatic" writings of the surrealist André Breton. Niedland’s paintings are "automatic" in that he approaches each canvas without preconception as to how it should look when finished. He paints quickly, without revision, working from his subconscious, improvising like a jazz musician does with music.

Niedland has exhibited in numerous solo art shows at cafes and hotels in the Philadelphia area and on DuPont Circle in Washington, DC. He has exhibited in a group show at the former Gallery Siano, and a solo show at Matthew Izzo Gallery. More than 200 Niedland paintings reside in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and in Belgium, Canada, England, France, Greece, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Poland, Puerto Rico, and Spain
