Artwork

Artist Christopher Garvey displays an allegory of his own firmness or lack thereof. He paints a fruit bowl but incorporates billiard balls in the work. A representation of being a people pleaser to a detriment. "As I continue to age, I've come to realize that I need to sometimes be firm in my decisions and at other times, relax more," says Christopher.

Christopher Garvey

Columbia, South Carolina

Christopher Garvey focuses on the still life in his work, capturing objects like dishes and fruit with impressive clarity. He currently lives in South Carolina and finds inspiration in Renaissance and Baroque art. When it comes to technique, he enjoys the challenge of accurate drawing and the transparent qualities of oil paint. He has collected many books over the years, which he uses to improve his practice.
