Christopher Paskins

My work Façades questions the world we live in through the practice of painting. This work shifts the context of everyday structures by bringing their form into into the world of art. The work references and simplifies the design and appearances of urban structures which are familiar to us in order to enhance the audience awareness of their local surroundings. Due to the works prime material, concrete, it also hints towards the future of art and the Anthropocene – perhaps one day everything will be made of concrete.
