Chris Aggs is a painter and printmaker who studied as a post-graduate student at the Royal Academy Schools and has since exhibited regularly in London and Sussex. His Landscapes and Still Lifes are collected internationally and he has works in several public collections (those in Sussex include Worthing Museum and Worthing Hospital). His most recent work grew out of studies made while on walking holidays in Switzerland. As well as an interest in the strong light and limpid air of the mountains, these paintings reflect a concern with the process of simplification necessary for traditional printmaking. The resulting large-scale oil paintings reduce very well for Giclée prints without any loss of colour brilliance or sense of scale.
Christopher lives and works in West Sussex and is a senior lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Chichester. His prints are available in Limited Editions of 150.
