We are very honoured to be exhibiting some of Christopher's paintings, he is an internationally renowned artist.
Born in 1961 he is the son of a Rhodesian farmer and teacher. After completing a Master of Fine Arts Degree at Rhodes University in South Africa, he swapped an earlier career as a portrait painter for his increasing interest in landscape and figure painting.
In 1989, he left Africa for the UK which has become the springboard for frequent and extensive travels to the subjects which move him most. Working in front of the motif, he will often shuttle the painting between the subject and the studio until it is resolved. The works from these journeys often refer in spirit to painters who have informed his progress towards abstract figuration from David Bomberg, Nicholas de Stael, Milton Avery and Willem de Kooning.
Having Christopher's paintings in our space is a great distraction - I often find myself getting drawn in by the colours and getting close, then losing myself in the texture and blends of colour and movement.
