Simple is Better – Chris Rollins



Spring has sprung and for me now is the time when the windows in my home get opened and the oppressive winter air is purged from my house. I find myself sorting through the clutter and making all things clean. Out with the old, in with the new. So, maybe I can blame my recent need for simplicity and humor on the changing season, but right now is a time when I really enjoy the work of Chris Rollins.

His work sings with the sunlight and dances with the walls. Bright colors, thick lines and humorous characters compose his prints. What makes his work so beautiful is that it's simply made. The simplicity allows me to easily understand the context of his work. It's as if the static has been removed and I can concentrate on what he’s broadcasting. His mindful use of color and composition are not made to be easy, rather, a mature understanding of knowing when to not say too much. Furthermore, each piece holds you for just long enough to enjoy. I’m never left feeling beaten or overwhelmed, just happy.

Ultimately, I enjoy his work because it’s easy, fun and inviting.

If you would like to see some of his work he’s got an Open House going on this weekend! Hope to see you there!
