French painter and lithographer Henri Fantin-Latour (1836–1904) is best known for his luxurious flower pieces. Inspired by the old masters, but far from traditional, fine artist Chris Kettle has developed what he calls ‘New Still Life’: painting familiar objects in unexpected arrangements, these works are a true visual embodiment of the uncanny.


White Roses After Fantin Latour by Chris Kettle

Kettle’s inanimate subject matter is charged with emotion, each composition captured in dynamic contrasts of light and dark to create drama and depth. With their thick brush strokes and saturated colours, these scenes of still life seem to inhabit a mysterious realm of their own.

Kettle’s ‘Terrarium’ was one of only three award winners of the UK’s National Open Art Competition in 2011, judged by Gavin Turk. His painting ‘Hubris’ was also chosen for the accompanying NOAC exhibition in the same year. Kettle lives and works in Brighton and continues to exhibit around the world.
