Christopher J. Stuart b. 1979
Inspiration lies within walls and wounds.
Fascination abounds in nature's power to cause healing and decay.
With my work I strive to create the complexity and decrepit beauty that can be found in a scar, or scrawled graffiti, or a rusted pipe.
I utilize thoughts piled on top of thoughts, memories upon memories, marks and erasures.
The effortless beauty caused by destruction and abandon wax ironic; for with this comes a sense of history and experience, a snapshot of something that is impermanent and constantly evolving, both blasphemous and innocent.
Poetry is nestled within the cracks, smudges, and abrasions.
