Christopher Jenkins' Profile

About

I grew up exploring the Thames and the abandoned buildings, ships and shores of Greenwich, London. Trained as an illustrator, my work has diversified to include sculpture, installation and outdoor structural assemblage, but kept a narrative core. Much of my sculptural work involves using found materials from machines and natural materials to create detailed architectural coastal sculptures. My desire is to trigger a personal narrative in the desolate shells of buildings and burned out rigs. I want to quietly invite viewers to become detectives as they explore the decay, the very absence of life amplifying previous activity.
