"Ambitious" represents a mediocre house plant in a bonsai pot. The tiny houseplant strives to be a bonsai, and while it might not reach that goal, it continues to grow and reach for that goal.

Christopher Garvey

Summerville, 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.
