Original painting in acrylic on board.

"This piece of work hints at an approach to somewhere, the end of a day seen through a haze or some imagined memory. I try to create the conditions for narrative rather than showing the whole story, allowing the work to be evocative and personal for each viewer rather than a forgone conclusion. However, there are themes running through my work; the twisted flesh of the architecture, blazing light and mercurial forms all speak of time, mortality and human endeavour."


Christopher Jenkins

With his dark, charred shanty towers, Christopher Jenkins conjures a post-apocalyptic world. His models, crafted from scrap metal and obsolete tools depict a world where modernist advancements in technology and society have failed, culture returning to a tribal, primitive and philistine age. Rusting and empty, these buildings are remnants of human activity, spaces hastily constructed and quickly abandoned. With elements of science fiction, Jenkins casts a postmodernist critique and examination of our culture, marking an emotional and psychological overview of our ideas of shelter and infrastructure.
