Podcast Episode 182: Chris Page

Welcome, Chris Page, an artist and painter who spent most of his adult life in the Amherst-Northampton area of Massachusetts. Chris just recently moved to Somerset and has a studio in the Hatch Street Studios in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

His work, although grounded in abstract painting is as he says, “based on walking and being present in the landscape.” Chris Page is currently walking the area of Horseback Beach and Gooseberry Neck in Westport, Massachusetts as a specific exploration. He is especially interested in wave rhythms and seaweed accumulation formations and their space-making patterning.

His work involves both painting and photography. Chris often starts with a photograph and overpainting it. His paintings begin as primarily gestural mark-making followed by scraping to form his images. Visit the Notebook section on his website to see his most recent work

Chris speaks with The Artists Index’s cofounder, documentarian, and podcast host, Ron Fortier, about painting in general and his painting practice. This episode was recorded with Zoom. The Artists Index uses Zoom to accommodate our guests’ schedules and to allow them to remain in the comfort of their homes, especially those who no longer live on the South Coast of Massachusetts. 

Our home base and recording studio is located at Spectrum Marketing Group in Howland Place in New Bedford.  If you would like to be a guest on The Artists Index or have a suggestion, please let us know!
