Chris Charteris: Forces of Land and Ocean - Art Collector

Chris Charteris’ inscribed and polished stone sculptures possess a sense of gravitas that is drawn from the solidity of the medium and the respectful way it is handled by the artist. Whether utilising natural fracture lines of andesite or the rounded forms shaped by centuries of breaking waves, Charteris works with the vagaries of the stone he chooses for his sculptures. Forces of Land and Ocean also features works using whalebone, some of which has been sourced from recent strandings in the vicinity of his Coromandel home and some which has an older pedigree.
