Christopher Townsend

EDUCATION:
Townsend graduated from Liverpool University in 1996, with a first class combined honours degree in Fine Art and Psychology, and now works from a farm studio in rural Oxfordshire.

CAREER:
His work is concerned with challenging sculptural space, through the creation of work which is wall, ceiling or floor based. Throughout my work there is a base awareness and interest in line, form and balance. His choice of materials is generally mild or stainless steel together with found metal objects, stone and wood. He has recently become more involved in public art projects and has recently carried out a number of practical inset days in schools, working with children from years 4 to 8. His work is held in private collections around the world.

MEDIUMS USED IN WORK:
Chris mainly uses mild steel, stainless steel, found metal objects, wood and stone.

SUBJECTS OF WORK:
His work is powerfully influenced by the environment and location around his studio, but there is also a strong influence of the sea and all things watery, born from visits to Devon and Cornwall and perhaps his desire to live by the sea. He is also influenced by Tai Chi and kick boxing this helps him to understand the balance of the human body.

EXHIBITIONS:
Most of Chris’ work is done on a commission basis but he does have work in both private and public exhibitions in the uk and abroad.
