ABOUT OUR GUEST CURATOR
Deeply fascinated by contemporary art and visual culture, Christopher launched Colossal as a personal blog in the fall of 2010 to catalogue the work of both established and emerging artists across a wide-range of artistic disciplines. The site attracted millions of monthly readers seemingly overnight, and within two years he was able to quit his day job to publish full-time and also opened a fun design shop. Colossal is the recipient of the Utne Media Award for arts coverage, a Webby Award nomination, and has received accolades from the National Endowment for the Arts and PBS Art21.
Called the “Tate Modern of the Internet,” Colossal now has seven regular contributors and is committed to making art accessible to everyone, exploring street art, design, photography, illustration, and craft from all reaches of the globe. In addition to daily articles at Colossal, Christopher has also contributed to Wired Magazine, Beautiful/Decay, Mental Floss, Slate, Designboom, and Quartz.
After engaging with thousands of artists, designers, and makers both online and off, Christopher is bringing art to unexpected places offline through noteworthy exhibitions and events currently slated through 2020. These varied projects promise to be as wildly exciting and original as the work appearing on Colossal each day.

In my work I carefully navigate personal and intergenerational memory through visuospatial reconstruction. There is an active absence of the figure in my work, as if these scenes are the aftermath of an event, possibly still in motion.

Relationships
(I always say) are never easy:
especially those between
color, shape, texture, space . . .
and tension.
The relationship of the part to the part,
the part to the whole and the relationship
of the piece to the viewer . . . no matter
what materials I use is all important.
I use titles to emotionalize these abstract
pieces to help communicate a connection
between the individual and
the universal whole.

In the metal pieces I use recycled aluminum
printing press plates which I sand,
cut and glue onto wood panels, they are
about energy and light, patterns and
motion, all influenced by the microcosm
of life forms, biology, and a
hint of satire.
