Chris Crites presents Yard Waste and Toilet Paper from Oct. 7 - Oct.30, 2010. A sort of an experimental show for Crites, he visits ideas he has had for years but had not yet executed. Large scale works on yard waste bags and mug shot portraits on 72 cardboard toilet paper tubes make up the show and his first installation piece.

72 People I Will Never Know. (detail, uninstalled) Acrylic ink on reclaimed cardboard, 2010.

"My work is a selfish act of creation. It has no real meaning. I paint what I would like to examine - crime, violence, war as well as common objects and people. The choice of the paper bag is primarily one of aesthetics but also displays the trivial, disposable attitude our society takes towards life on Earth."
