Background on Sculpture

    Creates Thrive! sculpture (including mobiles and stabiles) under the signature GChris.  His primary artistic influence is Alexander Calder. 

    Thrive! abstract sculpture by GChris is mission-driven.  GChris sculpture supports our creating and sustaining large, positive change and achieving a thriving future for all forever. 

    Thrive! sculptures by GChris utilize natural materials -- copper and wood.  Woods are primarily American hardwoods -- mostly black walnut -- with contrasts provided by exotic African and South American woods.   Copper is used in many forms and takes each work through a living process.   

    GChris sculptures are to be interacted with and "gently touched".  Some are copper or wood or both.  Sizes range from a foot to dozen feet or larger.  Some make sounds when moved by wind or people; some remain silent.  Some move physically; some move conceptually.  All generate shadows, a second image.

    Existing Thrive! sculpture (e.g., mobiles and stabiles) by GChris may be donated and number over 100 pieces with dimensions ranging from a few inches to 12 feet and larger.
