Join MOAH and Northrup-Grumman in welcoming internationally celebrated figure painter Rebecca Campbell and emerging abstract painter Chris Trueman to the Antelope Valley. Campbell will interview Truman about his solo exhibition Slipstream in MOAH’s East Gallery. Truman’s expansive, immersive canvases provide the viewer with a slipstream, or an assisting force, that draws the viewer into the painting through opposing elements of design and contrasting philosophical ideologies. The interview will focus on his creative process, artistic intent, and the scientific and philosophical underpinnings of his work.
Chris Trueman earned his BFA from San Francisco Art Institute in Painting and Digital Media and his MFA from Claremont Graduate University. Trueman currently teaches painting at Fullerton College and Santa Ana College and has previously taught at Chapman University. Trueman has exhibited his work nationally in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and internationally in Milan, Italy. His work appears in New American Paintings and the Huffington Post.
