Chris grew up on the east coast of Yorkshire; much of his work draws from the landscape around Flamborough Head and the Humber Estuary. Stunted trees and decaying coastal defenses offer structure and points of focus in what can otherwise be desolate and sometimes forbidding landscapes.
Chris uses lino and mono print to build multiple horizontals and verticals of transparent layers of colour to suggest real places without direct reference to them.
