About The Artwork

This large pencil and ink drawing (1.0 m x 1.5m) is a response to my exploration of how creativity is interpreted and presented very differently in varying industries and occupations. My experience is that the fundamentals of creativity are actually very clearly the same, no matter what the situation. This view however is not held by many others, particularly often in parts of the business world. The merged table and desk image highlights this difference in treatment between the differing environments. The table top/side draws on the very structured use of mind maps, process charts and other more 'rigid' ways of presenting creative thoughts and ideas. Around the central image, and coming out of the open and private desk draws, creativity, ideas and opportunities are more fluid. Showing fewer constraints, structures and presentation.

Chris is a professional artist based in The Cotswolds, UK, producing artwork including Drawing, Sculpture and Photography. His work investigates the relationship between Humans and Creativity / Innovation. It is often informed by exploring ideas of increasing transitions and states of flux caused by rapidly growing volumes of change, and the resulting typical current responses to this, which demand constant creative and innovative human responses. It is also informed by exploring human responses to creativity and innovation, which come in many forms, and which appear to transform and translate subtly over time. Works can sometimes be a response to a range of potential triggers, capturing his immediate personal reactions to a wide range of contemporary events, found objects, materials, words and phrases, concepts and places and people he encounters. Chris attempts to combine his personal reactions, commentary and resulting storylines, with experimentation on how to effectively visually represent them, embedding this within the materiality of the artworks themselves. This often includes using found object deconstruction and re-purposing/recycling techniques, which challenge the current use or typical representations of the chosen physical objects or concepts. When existing objects, concepts or ideas are deconstructed or questioned, and then uniquely combined and reconstructed, they can convey very different and powerful images and messages.
