Chris Edwards     

 

Chris was born in Tasmania, he studied medicine at the University of Tasmania, graduating in 1975 with a B Med Sc and MB BS. He then went on to train as a Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon in Hobart, Sydney, and Glasgow. He gained the FRACS in 1984 and worked as a Plastic Surgeon in Hobart for almost 30 years.

 

Christopher is a self- taught sculptor with no formal training in art. He has, however, always had an interest in design aesthetics and has taken on woodwork, metalwork, painting, and sculpture. His passion for bronze figurative sculpture stemmed from attending a 3-day drawing and modeling workshop.

Christopher researched the complex process of converting a clay image into bronze and produced his first figure in 2003. He uses the ancient lost wax technique.

 

Christopher’s work is held in many private collections both in Australia and Internationally.

 

Christopher is a finalist in the Deakin University Contemporary Small Sculpture Award 2013.
