Inspired by Alberta waterways, Chris Brooks creates unique landscape sculptures using an exploration of material and process. He began experimenting with different resins, as well as adding sculptural elements (handmade rocks and ice flows). Then building up semi-transparent layers, and blended tints to create depth and movement. The intention of his riverscapes is to create a connection to water and inspire a consideration of the reciprocal commitment people have with water. Chris went to the Ontario College of Art and Design after which he found work as a mold maker’s assistant before moving to Calgary, where he currently resides. He is a juried member of the Alberta Society or Artists. Chris has a handful of awards, publications, and has participated in exhibits throughout North America. His work can be found in many private and corporate collections across Canada.
