New Works by Chris Victor

February 8 – March 29

Opening reception: Friday, February 8, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

Chris Victor is a visual artist working primarily in repurposed and commonly available materials. For this exhibition, Chris has created a body of abstract, wall-based works inspired by his desire to return to painting, but using the materials, processes and methods of making things. The works reveal his curiosity and dexterity while exploring improvised making techniques inspired by the inherent qualities of the materials he is working with. This improvised method creates the works’ formal elements, with each piece developing from its own particular invented process. As the artist puts it, his aim is “to create works which are completely open about their own process of becoming.” Chris’s work has been in numerous shows including The Grand Rapids Public Museum, the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie, and The Samuel Dorsky Museum. Chris has been a resident at the Wassaic Project artist residency and was awarded an NYFA Fellowship in Sculpture in 2014. This event is free.
