is a fine artist who works in photomontage, painting, and ephemeral sculpture.
Soria's photomontages consist of layered photographs, cut and pasted in plexiglass. His work chronicles the decay of abandoned factories and explores the transformation of neglected industry. In a series of time-lapsing documentary works, Soria collages thousands of photographs to rebuild fallen complexes, reconstructing locations and revealing the succession of nature over time as they transform in the changing seasons and weather. Where and when pluralize, time separates, space is replaced, and everything becomes an record of what is past.
A muralist and public artist, Soria has created large scale murals and public works of art for numerous institutions, schools, universities, and private and public spaces internationally. As an educator, Soria is a Lead Artist with Groundswell
, bringing together artists, youth, and community organizations, using art as a tool for social change. Chris Soria is currently accepting commissions for 2013. To make a request or receive a quote, email Chris Soria at email@example.com
