Other Works

 

The painter Edgar Whitney once suggested that the role of an artist is to be a shape maker, an entertainer and an expressive symbol collector. As an artist Chris is certainly all these things. He has always enjoyed telling stories in words and pictures. He collects, creates and forms symbols that become part of our shared narrative.
