“Somehow I was trying to link the earth to the skies or the stars to the earth … it is easy to see this as a metaphor for the more spiritual side of my nature and I wouldn’t seek to deny this obvious equation. Everything has a dual nature, in fact my own relationship with my imagination is a perfect example of this, on the one hand there is my everyday practical self, and then there is this rampant imagination that hates mundane things and causes havoc when I am not painting.”

Born and raised in Leeds, Christopher initially studied at Chelsea College of Art. In 1987 he returned to Leeds, avoiding the fashions and commercial pressures associated with the London art world at that time. Since then he has worked incessantly, developing and refining his technique and medium in the pursuit of his unique artistic vision. His working process is exhausting, and many of his hard fought paintings are eventually destroyed in a rigorous exercise to maintain his exceptionally high artistic standards.
