Chris O’Brien is a multi-disciplinary artist working in painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Utilising a myriad of mediums, he is predominantly concerned with representing domestic dwellings with personal and domestic narratives. He crafts houses in varying states of decrepitude, anthropomorphising them with names such as ‘Edmund’, and populating them with stories involving thieves, ghosts and animals. His source material includes real estate brochures, photos, Google Earth maps, architectural plans as well as pure conjecture.
Chris is represented by Arts Project Australia.
