Christiane Palpant is an American artist living and working in Atlanta, Georgia. She is the daughter of award winning portrait artist Gail Palpant, who has passed on the artistic skill and tradition of oil painting to her daughter. From her mother, Christiane learned her strong sense of color, and formed her first ideas of communicating through artistic medium. Christiane’s work features abstract horizons and landscapes in which she uses dramatic and bold colors, to create psychologically and aesthetically engaging oil works on canvas.
The immediate spectrum of color that Palpant employs shows her strong understanding and grasp on the medium. She pushes her style by incorporating one or more ambiguous light sources and perspective, which allow each piece to open itself up more with each viewing. Palpant draws from her experience with a recent health condition, after which she picked up her paintbrush with “prolific intention,” to create works that inspire inner calm and a sense of hope. Every bit of her journey is felt in each unique brushstroke.
