Christopher Sullivan is an artist who work seeks to create conditions that compel the viewer to look harder, longer and deeper into relationships that the work presents. His paintings and drawings deliberately contrast color, light, spaces, imagery and paint handling to arrive at an unplanned and at times surprising resolution and balance. Sullivan has shown at the Attleboro Art Museum, Boston Center for the Arts, South Shore Art Center, Easthampton City Art Gallery and Flywheel Gallery, Easthampton, MA, Erector Square Gallery, New Haven, CT, 936 Gallery, San Francisco, CA, Cambridge Art Association, Cambridge, MA, Bowery Gallery, NY, NY, and the Northampton Center for the Arts. Sullivan received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and BFA from Massachusetts College of Art. He has taught Drawing at MassArt since 2000, and previously taught at Montserrat College of Art, San Francisco Art Institute, The Peabody Essex Museum and Saint Francis Day Shelter, Boston.
