Louisville artist Chasson Higdon has explored many different mediums throughout the years. Whether it’s creating nostalgic acrylic images inspired by stained glass windows or elegant figures in oil that harkens back to times gone by, his style and vision have remained consistent. Self taught and highly motivated, Chasson has continued to find his artistic voice and search for inspiration in the past. Using stained newspaper across canvas, his figures look as though they could have been made half a century ago but they are still firmly grounded in the present. While he prefers to paint the figure, he’s also capable of making soft but colorful landscapes that are filled with texture and life.
After keeping his paintings hidden for most of his adult life, Chasson’s work will be featured in a retrospective from Nov. 22-Dec. 1 at Tim Faulkner Gallery, 632 E. Market St., 381-1314. There will be an opening reception Tuesday, Nov. 23 from 5-11 p.m.
