About The Artwork

This sculpture forms part of my 'Horizon Scanning' series of work which includes sculptures, large drawings and paintings, which explore emerging social, political and environmental trends, concepts and issues. The piece was triggered by exploring the current social trend for people urgently making the move from towns and cities across the country, into the countryside. This trend has significantly accelerated during the pandemic, alongside the workplace trend for increased homeworking and the wider social trends of seeking increased quality of life and work life balance. The mediums, materials and structure were chosen to illustrate the difficult balance between the physical experience of the trend, and its practical implications for individuals. Exploring this trend suggests it is certainly not as straightforward as it may first appear when described, and further pieces in this series attempt to capture this growing complexity. The sculpture can be wall hung with fittings included at the rear of the work, or can be freestanding on its own base.

Chris is a professional artist based in the 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.
