Christopher St. John. Art and Shine.
My work touches on the impact of place on the shape of our lives, the luck we have in living on a planet with a biosphere, the vocabulary of form, the figure, and impermanence. Animals make regular appearances in my work. My art has been exhibited and collected across the United States and internationally in France, Sweden, Japan, Canada, and Malta. I received my BFA from the University of Alaska at Fairbanks. My art is in the permanent collections of two American museums. I am represented by these galleries:
The Salty Teacup in Portland, Oregon also carries a number of my decorative and sculptural ceramics pieces.
This is an onsite drawing I did for my most recent exhibition, Singing the Animal, Singing the Earth, with Shelly Fredenberg at the Maude Kerns Art Center in Eugene, Oregon.
