About Christopher Culver
Christopher Culver’s practice considers the production, labor, and human traces present within urban contexts. Based on snapshots that the artist takes himself—often of familiar settings or personal acquaintances—Culver’s pastel and charcoal drawings are both tender and voyeuristic. He sensitively renders his vacant cityscapes, forgotten still lifes, and intimate interior spaces through an almost sculptural drawing process, building up and erasing his hazy surfaces in many layers. The grainy effect of his layered surfaces enhances the photographic, or filmic, quality of his mysterious compositions. Veiled in darkness, Culver’s quietly atmospheric drawings suggest the presence of something more.
