Christophe Ennis is an outsider artist with a fauvist palette, expressing a visionary view of a perilous and futile future that reflects the dichotomy of beauty in nature and it's vicious unforgiving horrors. Using automatism and surrealist abstraction with organic shapes, he commonly finds cephalopod-like and bird-like anthropomorphic creatures, defining them within his compositions. He is compelled toward these reoccurring creatures and finding their meaning in the worlds he creates. His organic abstract landscapes often exhibit tessellations of imaginary creatures, animals, the female form, macabre imagery, and nature in compositions that flow with illusive definition. As the images crowd and overlap they distort and grow, morphing and mutating with a subtle fluidity of chroma and value into a morass of the strange and unreal. Using these techniques he creates an hallucinatory change and motion in his pieces that can be both subtle and abrupt creating depths and images often overlooked from casual viewing.
