James Chronister

San Francisco painter James Chronister employs a labor-intensive, pointillist technique to achieve strikingly nuanced tonality and depth in his paintings. Armed with a tiny brush and guided by projected grids, he meticulously applies dots of black pigment onto a white ground until the images of snowy forest landscapes, palatial interiors and rock music legends magically emerge, reaching near-photographic veracity.
