Chris Mcloughlin’s Contemporary Landscape Paintings

capture the conscious experience and awareness of a place. Working from observation and inspired by his senses and emotions, Chris Mcloughlin pushes the boundaries of representational painting towards a more phenomenological approach.

  • (Phenomenology) – an approach that concentrates on the study of consciousness and the objects of direct experience.

This perception of the landscape is translated onto canvas through bold expressive brushwork and an intuitive relationship with colour. The subjects are invariably places that he knows well or visits often and include high mountain top fells and sweeping valley corridors. Over the years his work has taken him to places such as Tyan Shan in Kazakhstan, Italy, the Lake District and the Orkney Islands.

Recently he has been developing a series of work using the seascape motif and venturing into the urban environment of the northern cities. He often works at sunrise and sunset throughout the seasons, chasing the light.

Chris Mcloughin has been featured in many publications such as Lancashire life, Art of England, DiscoverArt Magazine, the Cumberland News and interviewed by BBC radio. He is known for creating dynamic contemporary landscape paintings that capture and express a very unique atmospheric ambience.

His work is highly sought after and is held in many private collections here in the UK and throughout Europe, the USA, Australia and Japan. Chris has also worked with various charities including the Princes Trust and the ABF Soldiers Charity.
