Christopher Page — Container Artist Residency

Christopher Page (b. 1984 London, England) is an artist currently living and working in Athens, Greece. His paintings explore abstraction and representation by combining hard-edged compositional strategies with illusionistic painting techniques to think through contemporary theories of vision, alongside the flows of bodies and capital.

Page attended Camberwell College of Art, Central St Martin’s, and received his MFA from the Yale School of Art. His work has been exhibited at Hunter/Whitfield, London; Sushi Bar Gallery, New York; Hannah Barry Gallery, London; Amberwood House, London; The Pickle Factory, London; Gerald Moore Gallery, London; and No Format Gallery, London.

Shipping off to Sea

Christopher Page turned some of his paintings into crates that will accompany him on his journey from Piraeus, Greece to New York. The works made their way from Page’s studio in Athens to a small fishing boat that shuttled Page and the crates onto the ship that he is now traveling on. Maayan Strauss accompanied Page during his midnight boarding and took some photographs of the process.
