Chris Charteris (1966-.) New Zealand

Biographical Information

Originally trained as a carver, Chris Charteris creates sculpted forms and body adornment. This freestanding pounamu piece, with its richly leafed gold cross, plays with the inherent differences pertaining to value in culture. Pounamu long considered by Maori to denote status and authority, is teamed with gold leaf, the metallic luster offset by the polished and the raw surface of the stone. Chris Charteris is represented by FHE Gallery, Auckland and Janne Land, Wellington. EF Edit or add to this biography
