From Fremantle, Western Australia, he moved to Phuket to follow his creative calling. Chris began painting over a year ago in 2010, having waited his whole life to allow himself his true passion, denying it from an early age, as he was always too busy. Since arriving in Phuket Chris has completed over 40 paintings.
The exhibit will be predominately large abstract works. The creation of each piece comes from an experience or a point of view. “I store these feelings and when the time is right I tap into them and transfer them to canvas. Colors and emotions drive the work, yet what the artist see and viewer interpret will be very different, the painting becomes their own individual reality”. Chris offers his story behind each painting to the owners, in most cases a very personal story.
VR Gallery is the successor to the mini gallery that existed at Mom Tri’s Boathouse for many years. The Boathouse gallery served as a venue for local and visiting artists. It is anticipated that the new VR Gallery will continue this tradition of bringing visual enjoyment for all.
VR Gallery, Golden Elephant Boutique and Sunshine Coffee Shop are located adjacent to Mom Tri’s Villa Royale at the entrance of the Baan Kata Estate.
