Chris uses caustic soda to etch lino; he combines this with monoprint to depict the Yorkshire coast. The intention is to create a sense of place without direct reference to it.
Public Preview Evening 5th April
Exhibiting in 2019
Chris trained at Hull College of Art, the University of Leeds and Leeds Metropolitan University, where he specialised in printmaking. Chris grew up on the Yorkshire coast; much of his work draws from the landscape around Flamborough Head, Bempton Cliffs and Spurn Point. Latterly he has used the tidal flats of Scotland’s Galloway coast to inform his work. Chris has taught Art at St Peter’s School for nearly 30 years.
