Chris’ Artistic Statement on NPX:

 

I feel that all art is storytelling. Whether with paint and brush, chisel and stone, music and lyrics, on the stage or onscreen the purpose is to convey a thought or feeling from one human to another. It is the fundamental connection we share with the entirety of the human race.
