Artist Website

Christopher Paul, born in Bulverde, Texas, is a Houston-based artist that has studied at University of Houston and Central Saint Martins. Their work explores the relationship between spiritual ecstaticism and inhibition loss that draw from their mixed Gullah Geechee/Korean heritage and Queer Identity. Paul’s dynamic installations, performances and sound activation blur boundaries between movement and physical detachment, resulting in sculptures and collages that capture sensorial ineffable states of ecstatic clarity. Their work has been exhibited at various prestigious institutions such as Blaffer Art Museum, Contemporary Art Center New Orleans, Houston African American Cultural Center, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
