Thurston Moore stated that “Chris Gollon’s work moves beyond painting as singular expression, where music and its essence of spiritual sentience, comes into accord, creating a personal yet welcoming environment, alive and free. I am proud to have had a moment where we colluded via the gestures of mutual acquaintance. His creative and modest genius is eternal.”

In 2001, an exhibit of his work was presented within the River and Rowing Museum in Henley-on-Thames since, until the year 2005, Gollon was connected to the river, having an studio at Platts Eyot, a private island in the River Thames near Hampton Court west of London. The museum, supported through the Victoria and Albert Museum, bought a piece by Gollon named Big Fish Eat Little Fish that was the main focus of the exhibit.
