Chaz Guest

Guest’s paintings capture stillness and movement with equal skill. From still lifes of enslaved people working the fields in his lauded Cotton Series to evocative oil portraits of jazz greats creating brilliance with their instruments, Guest has a clear philosophy about his creative zeal. “It’s about capturing the moment,” he says with Zen-like clarity. “If I had three lifetimes, I still couldn’t paint everything I have going on in my mind.”
