Chris Chookiatsirichai

Minneapolis, MN

Artists bio available upon request

I find myself inspired by forces found within culture and nature: Colors and patterns asymmetric and symmetric; juxtaposition of polished with the rough; reinventions; interpretations echoing patterns found in textiles, pottery and jewelry; old traditions of nomadic peoples. I am fascinated with the expression of self decoration and adornment; how all walks of people collect certain objects, items holding stories or histories that connect to some sort of meaning and identity. Each piece I create with thought and care using antique trade glass, shells, stone, components of old/antique jewelry, vintage buttons and various other bits of memory and organic matter...many of which are out of production; no two are alike. They are entities of individuality as is the wearer.
