Chris Firger is an impressionist landscape painter born in Haverhill, Massachusetts in 1989. He studied at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec and currently works out of his studio in Salem, Massachusetts. A lover of the outdoors, Chris looks to share his experience of the landscape through each of his paintings. Rather than focussing on precise representation, he pushes color, contrast, and composition to bring viewers into a unique moment. Chris's work can be found in galleries and private collections in the US and abroad.
This piece is part of Chris Firger's January 2022 solo, "Up North," an exhibition informed by Chris Firger's most recent experiences in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. For Chris, growing up in Massachusetts, the phrase "Up North" was synonymous with those three states. It also brought to mind ideas of natural beauty, wilderness, and adventure. In this collection of sixteen new paintings, Chris hopes to have captured that specific idea of "Up North".
