Vase Series #2 Christopher Savage

About the artist

"My practice is deeply rooted in the act of drawing as it provides access to a fragmented visual reality that indirectly describes what's going on in my mind. Like dreaming, drawing reveals the inner history gleaned from what is observed and warped by the imagination. Its a process that has always been present for me, I would constantly draw and doodle during classes, but not until I enrolled in art school did it begin to emerge as my medium of choice. It appealed to me because of how simple an act drawing is, its wide applications to other mediums, and its highly ephemeral qualities. As my drawing practice progressed I began reflecting on contemporary and historical images from books, magazines, photographs, and memories. I now pull to the surface the emotionally charged images which are then deconstructed and simplified, combining the strange and ambiguous with the representational. I look to reference the historical narrative and utopian vision, while not presenting a definitive narrative to allow for multiple readings by the viewer."
