Christian Little’s paintings call into question the idea of maintained appearances and act as artifacts of the artist’s experiences growing up in the Hamptons in a working class family. The central themes of Little’s work are class, vanity, labor, leisure, and perceptions of “reality.”
Little’s acrylic paintings are based on contradiction. They are simultaneously erotic and sterile, stiff and fluid, analytic and absurd, actual and artificial.
His imagery examines our vo**ur culture preoccupied with s*x, body image, drama and the lives of others. Abstracted figures engage in strange spaces and perform maintenance-based activities: shaving, bathing, scrubbing the shower floor, lifting weights, toweling off and straightening up. Marble surfaces, steam, mops, sponges, rubber gloves, and smoke are rendered in virtuosic trompe l’oeil.
