Chris Hawtin creates narratives that do not follow conventional sequences of events; his work is reminiscent of a post apocalyptic scenery inhabited by science fictional machines; hybrids constructed or grown from organic and mechanical parts. Their personalities interact with the various characters that they share their habitat with. The characters/beings appear in different landscapes in different works to create and recreate personal stories that interact with each other dependent on the viewers interpretation. Hawtin uses computerised imagery and sometimes sound waves as his starting point, woven with painting and sculptural processes he ‘wraps and re wraps’ creating hybrid worlds of ‘in-between’ states.
