CHRIS PLAISTED

My works tends to focus on forms of

conflict. It may be in the concept: man

vs. nature, social vs. emotion or it may

be the tension created by the use of

contrasting materials. I connect with

the juxtaposition of diff erent materials,

steel with copper and concrete, wood

with metals. I believe that the opposing

materials, or colors in my work, intensify

each element’s properties to produce a

more dynamic form of expression.

As I continue to hopefully create

visually appealing art, I don’t want to be

constrained by the style or the medium.

Quite the opposite, they should fl ow to

the next piece no matter the form or

function required.
