Product story

The virtuosic works of Chris Orr MBE RA revel in the surreal comedy of human life. Juxtaposing the everyday and the extraordinary with playful humour and an acute eye for detail. In this publication the artist, along with cultural historian Robert Hewison, explores his influences and significant contribution as an artist and teacher.

Michael Palin - "One thing this book reminds me most forcibly is how prolific Chris has been. His appetite for looking at the world seems never to have diminished. There's always something new to be looked at and experienced and digested and made sense of."
