Chris Miller reviews works by Christian Vincent at Ann Nathan Gallery, Chicago, on view through December 21, 2014.

Miller writes "Vincent’s figuration appears more like casual photography than any classic, naturalistic or expressive genre of painting. The surfaces glow like a movie screen. The pictorial space is dry and flat—sometimes resembling the scenic views found on wine-bottle labels—but elsewhere recalling decorators like Louis Comfort Tiffany and dreamers like Maurice Denis."
