Chris’s work questions our very existence. He is interested in the banal and what warrants an object to be beautiful or ugly. He is interested in the philosophy of trying to create meaning in a meaningless world.
Chris studied Fine Art and Public Art in the North East of England at Sunderland University in the 90’s, and previously Design at Cumbria College of Art & Design. More recently he also studied Criminology at Canterbury Christ Church University. Much of his work draws on his previous experiences as a police and prison officer.
He is currently one of the professional artists practicing at the Hive Artists Studios in Chelmsford, Essex.
Chris was born and grew up in Cumbria and now lives and works in Essex.
