Christopher Ries

The art of Christopher Ries is deceptively simple in form, but complex in expression as it engages each viewer into an intimate world of images. Ries’ sculptures clearly convey both his scientific and artistic mind — one part calculates precise incisions which result in splintering internal reflections, another envisions the masterpiece that so captivates the beholder. His work capitalizes on the high clarity, transmission, refractive and reflective properties of the optical glass he uses.
