Coming in to 2018, Cris is very excited to release his newest works, developed with passion and diligence for the last two years. He has created a series of sculptures that combine the top qualities of all his works into one. By balancing layers of opaque and translucent color, the light is able to cascade through each section of the sculpture to alter not only the artwork, but the entire space surrounding the sculpture. Using his expertise, he developed a way to layer a mixture of glass, lucite, and proprietary composites to form a near 300-pound block, which then gets carved into individual sections and hand formed from that point. These carefully modeled sections then come together and are constructed into one structure. Due to the intricacies of the process and the organic nature of the layering, no piece can ever be replicated the same way. Instead, each sculpture has its own distinct characteristics, color profile, and inspiration.
