by Chris Ketchell.
Finding beauty and intrigue in the lesser celebrated parts of the Sussex coastline.
Chris was drawn to the precarious nature of the houses nestled on the edge of this cliff top. Also by the sharp angles of the staircase carved into the rock. He wanted to translate this into its simplest form almost to the point of abstraction and show these angles contrasting with the flowing symmetry of the horizon.

Chris Ketchell is an animation director, printmaker and sculptor living and working in East Sussex. His style is graphic and reductive. He is inspired by the film, tv and music of the 1960's and works with the bold graphics and vibrant colours synonymous with this era. Chris' work explores the craft and beauty in everyday objects, uncelebrated people and places. Whether it be in the deconstruction of a piece of coastal industrial machinery, or in celebration of the sculpture of a plastic toy soldier, attention to detail and the quality of finish are always key to his work.
