The Thin Places

The Thin Places

May 13 - June 11, 2023

There are places in this world where the veil between heaven and earth is thin and porous. They are shrouded in mystery, containing shadowy passageways that connect light and dark, this world and the next. Crossing through them is not without consequence. The delicate equilibrium between the worlds shifts as light, life, and color are pulled from one to the other, taking with them fragments of the landscape. These are The Thin Places.

Chris Stokes mixes acrylic, graphite, pen and ink, and watercolor to explore movement, tension, and transcendence in this new collection of work.

Chris Stokes

Chris Stokes uses mixed media to interlace and layer unassuming combinations of color, lines and found materials. Elements from literature, cultural symbols, and architecture meld together to become art that equals more than the sum of its parts. Born in Philadelphia, the long-time San Francisco resident’s recent work is a reflection of his travels, his ever-evolving perspective of the world, and an interest in science fiction. The resulting pieces represent new landscapes and structures that seem barely possible.
