Chess art and other games to fall in love with

Individually these chess paintings tell unique stories and approach the game of chess from a myriad of different perspectives. 

Together they combine to tell a story about Theo's own love affair with the game and what it says about us as human beings.

But, when the dust settles, and the paint dries, they also acknowledge that chess is simply another board game, merely inviting our participation. Chess is unpretentious, direct and inevitable.

It is sometimes intimate, always competitive, and often very emotional. In the end, Theo's invitation here is to simply participate in his passion, and to enjoy the power of the game and the hidden depths that it can speak to.

As the French painter and sculptor, Marcel Duchamp said, "I have come to the conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists."
