It’s easy to confuse these Christopher Stott paintings as photographs. After all, the realism in each depiction is something Stott actively strives to achieve. More impressive, however, is the fact that he leaves discernible brushstrokes in his paintings to convey a sense of movement and process. It’s this approach to realism with minor impressionist sensibilities that makes Stott’s work worth examining in comparison to flawless hyperreal renderings.

In this particular collection, Christopher Stott illustrates a series of typewriters that are decades old. He manages to emulate all the mechanical components flawlessly while retaining a painterly look in his work, and the emptiness of each composition serves to emphasize the complexities of each typewriter, as well as to establish a serene mood.
