Chris Maker’s work is an exploration of the composition of place and time through the interpretation of cultural phenomena, the political state, and the physical environment. This work documents his vision as an artist trained as an architect/city planner uncovering literal and metaphoric signs in the environment and the ways they shape perceptions, social interactions, and daily activities. Chris possesses a varied education with an equally diverse professional background bound by a desire to experiment and integrate his experience.
Paintings in oil and enamel explore ideas of perception and human behavior as it relates to the environment. Drawings and prints are based on loose conceptual ideas relating to anecdotal personal experiences and ideas related the to the production of other art pieces. These works often convey interest in life drawing or the illustration of journal writing.
