Chris lives and works at his studio in Steyning, UK, and draws inspiration from the Old Masters when creating his Still Life artworks. We love the way he sheds new light on a traditional form of painting.Read more
He has said, “For the last couple of decades I have focused solely on Still Life painting. The paintings inhabit a mysterious world of their own with objects arranged on canvasses that are charged with light and drama to somehow channel emotion and universal feelings. I like the idea that my paintings are entertaining, and possess relatable aesthetic qualities alongside ambiguity and even at times a kind of humour. The absorbing challenge I face every time I pick up a brush and attempt to portray elements of the human spirit using the apparently inanimate, is one that that keeps me totally consumed.”
Chris studied Fine Art at Cardiff Institute and has been a featured artist in a variety of group shows in Milan, New York, Miami, and London. Additionally, his artwork has appeared in solo exhibitions in Gstaad, Newcastle, and Brighton.
