2020 Artists


Christopher Mooney

Living in Portland for many years, I have established a niche in the art community as a painter of contemporary realism. A significant body of my work focuses on Oregon's bridges and diverse architectural styles that use an interesting mix of materials, framing, and textures. The rivers and bridges are critical to the city's character and function and are a great source of my inspiration. Bridges frame our landscape and create a vital connection between communities and commerce. I am fascinated by the complex steel girders and geometric shapes that underpin the majesty of bridges that so often compel us to just stop and look to be still in the moment and breathe in the ingenuity of a grand bridge. I enjoy building dramatic perspectives in my bridge paintings to deliver unusual points of view that render exciting realistic and abstract portrayals. I am also well-regarded for my portraiture, images of working heroes, and figurative work stylistically depicted in modern realism.
