Multi-disciplinary artist, Christopher Paul Brown, is a photographer, film-maker, musician, and writer. He also practices “alchemy,” a process by which he converts abandoned industrial sites in Chicagoland’s Fox River Valley to the opposite. In his abstract images, the reds, browns, and greys of oxidized metal, broken equipment, and weeds become blues, purples, greens and golds. Methods he developed as a performer and producer of improvisational music and experimental film show up again in the ways he inverts, reverses, separates, rephrases, combines,
and transforms the parts of his visual compositions.
Dek Unu Arts, through its contests, reviews, open calls and referrals is privileged to collect extraordinary images from the international photo-art community and to provide on-going access to the artists' work and professional contact links here. Along with artworks stored for display in individual galleries, Dek Unu provides web, social, email, and other essential links to the member artists and their work through its permanent collection in order to expedite contact between these artists, potential customers and the wider world. Unlike other galleries which assess artists a large fraction of represented sales proceeds, not-for-profit Dek Unu Gallery treats all fees as entirely optional to its artists and splits the proceeds of each sale 50-50 with the artist.
