American artist Christopher Troutman searches to redefine the point of view presented to us in two-dimensional art. Troutman creates realistic views and familiar scenarios that are recreated from memory with a very particular attention to spatial depth and definition. Taking a spin on the classical trompe l’oeil, his mark-making seems loose and free when in fact, each line and stroke of a charcoal stick has a very deliberate purpose. His endeavor in paneled artwork, resembling comic book art, has created an amazing body of work that flawlessly tells a story. Even in his single image work, the way his characters are composed tells us a story and draws us into the moment that he is recreating for his viewers.
An accomplished professor at Lamar University, Troutman has received a plethora of awards, as well as being part of several exhibitions, both in the United States and abroad. He draws his inspiration from his memories of the American Mid-West and his experiences in Southern Japan. He travels annually to Japan. Undoubtedly, his constant travels are a source of inspiration that keep refining his eye for a good story.
