Chris was awarded the RUNNERS UP Prize 2017 ANL Maritime Award for this work, "Guardians of an unknown Port" 2017 Many Layered, Textural, Collage and Mixed Media on Paper. Professionally Framed with Double Mount and Black Timber H72 x W92 x D2 cm. Artwork floated to show complete work including paper edges.
Heading in from an unknown Port,
Heading out to destinations imagined,
The Guardians protect this constant ebb and flow of disparate vessels, and all those who travel within, for generations to come.
This work was extremely difficult to photograph and capture the detail layers, textures and subtle tones as the light, within the work, shifts across the picture plane.
