Transformative Tea-Towels - Chris Dobrowolski

by Art at Home (Kath&Company)


Chris says: “I wanted to find a visual relationship between 'art' and 'tea towels' and have devised a series of 6 reproductions of modern sculpture made from 'washing up'.  I call the series 'The Kitchen Sink Dioramas'.”

Chris’ practice encompasses performance, sculpture and storytelling.  His inventive work explores landscape and location, nostalgia and escape.  He creates works of art that will allow him to come to terms with the absurdities of modern living – or else to escape his daily life entirely.

Chris was born and lives and works in Essex.  He studied at the Royal College of Art.  He also studied in Hull where he was invited to return and commissioned as part of the Hull 2017 UK City of Culture.  He has exhibited and performed nationally and internationally including participating in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and was also an artist in residence with the British Antarctic Survey.
