More Info
"Perfect From Now On" - is a Fine Arts Lecture Series Event, a collaboration of the Saint Anselm College Fine Arts Department and Alva deMars Megan Chapel Art Center.

Artist Christopher Mir will give a talk about his paintings, his working process and influences, as well as the psychological and philosophical intentions in the work.

"Christopher Mir's paintings present a world populated by mythic figures, creatures, machines, and fragments of ambiguous forms. These elements are often positioned within idealized landscapes in dream-like circumstances. Mir’s paintings invite us to experience a series of paradoxical relationships and unsettling juxtapositions. His figures and landscapes are drawn from specific sources yet remain anonymous; his painting style is relatively tight and refined, but his works are emotionally evocative and resonant. Mir’s narratives are equally complex and replete with provocative dichotomies such as, the mystical versus the physical, the spiritual versus the secular, and the primal versus the futuristic."
-- from an essay by Joanna Marsh, curator, The Smithsonian
