"Looking Out At the Ocean" is a silkscreen on coventry rag paper, based on his recent series of untitled silkscreen paintings exhibited at Almine Rech Gallery in 2015. The work uses images cut from magazines which create gritty, monochromatic collages reminiscent of faded rock posters.

German artist Chris Succo works in a variety of materials and processes, creating paintings made by spray painting lacquer and oil on canvas using a minimalist palette largely comprised of matte black and white. Succo’s ZigZag Paintings resemble writing or calligraphy, a characteristic that evinces the significant influences of poetry and music in his work. For one of his best known series, the White Paintings, the painting background is partially obscured by gestural layers of white oil paint, allowing flashes of colour to shine through. Creating also silkscreened collages on canvas or sculptures with mild steel, mesh, or boxing equipment, Succo writes a storyline from one work to another that shares a quest of individuality within the elements of expression and refinement of forms and techniques.
