Chris is currently working on soundscapes for Petals and Claws, revisiting Alan Garner’s award winning novel, The Owl Service, 50 years on. This touring exhibition is in venues across the UK in 2017/2018. Click on the owl to see the promo video in English and click here for a Welsh version.

Bringing together a multi-disciplinary group of artists from either side of the Welsh/English border, this collaboration, curated by David Heke, explores and celebrates this ground-breaking story and its origins in Welsh myth. The multimedia project includes photography, video, painting, sculpture, music/soundscape, poetry and a fine art upholstery installation.
