Art at The DEN
Christopher Jon Schroeder
We are excited to announce that on Tuesday, November 7, The DEN will be reopening our doors with a renewed commitment to the arts. Every day, the people at DEN Property Group work to help shape the landscape of this great city. It’s a privilege that we take seriously and with immense gratitude. More importantly, we feel it’s our responsibility to return this honor to the community by providing an exuberant arts program dedicated to offering everyone the opportunity to experience art in their everyday lives. Art can elevate our quality of life while providing new ways to see the world around us.
Art at The DEN invites you to be the first to experience the strikingly energetic oil paintings of artist, Christopher Jon Schroeder, under the direction of Miguel Rangel. Please join us for the viewing of our inaugural exhibition.
Tuesday, November 7th | 7 PM to 9 PM
Christopher Jon Schroeder’s highly energetic and dynamic oil paintings demonstrate the culmination of three decades of dedication to his craft. His use of bold, dramatic brush strokes and colorful layers of paint create a body of work that melds both the figurative and the abstract. Shortly after formally pursuing his art career, Schroeder was diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder that led him on a philosophical journey and influenced his thoughts on the critical analysis of art. His process also focused on the expression of his unconscious emotional reactions and his conscious responses to them, which he refers to as “emotional alchemy”. Schroeder’s current work resonates with influential masters like Picasso, Twombly and most significantly that of de Kooning. The exhibition’s large intense and emotional oil paintings depict the artist’s journey into abstract expressionism.
