ABOUT

 

Chris Burbridge is a contemporary stone artist.

 

Chris studied Architectural Stone Carving at the City & Guilds of London Art School.

 

Chris’s passion for stone began collecting pebbles on beaches as a child. This fascination for natural forms continues in his work; the beauty and tranquillity of stone lies in its intrinsic qualities; the unique inclusions, the textures and colour gradations. Chris is influenced by a variety of ancient uses of stone and the permanence that these forms convey. It is these characteristics that Chris seeks to emphasize in his work, particularly focusing on the relationship between light, form, material and solidity.

 

Chris is a member of the Chelsea Arts Society.
